WikiLeaks Founder Says No One Harmed By Site's Leaks

Julian Assange is fighting extradition to Sweden
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has insisted that no one has come to harm as a result of the site's publication of classified U.S. documents.

Speaking at a literary festival in Britain, Assange said "there are no official allegations in the public domain" of anyone being hurt by disclosures on WikiLeaks.

U.S. authorities are investigating whether WikiLeaks violated U.S. laws by releasing thousands of secret government diplomatic cables, and military documents on the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Assange is currently on bail in Britain.

He is fighting extradition to Sweden to face allegations of rape and sexual molestation against two women. He denies all charges.
