The reports published by WikiLeaks, created by Assange in 2006 and specialising in leaking government documents, have made him an enemy of the US government. In its War Logs, comprising hundreds of thousands of US documents about Afghanistan and the war in Iraq, WikiLeaks discloses human rights abuses by the US army under the Bush administration. Among them are photos of the deaths of two Reuters journalists killed by US troops in Kabul.
