WikiLeaks ISP denies police raid

Swedish Internet service provider PRQ, which hosts WikiLeaks, has denied reports that it has been raided by Swedish police in connection with the whistle-blowing site.

Company director Mikael Viborg this morning told Sweden's P3 News (in Swedish) that the police had left PRQ's premises in Solna after the company "raised some questions about two IP numbers".

The company, which was raided by Swedish police in 2006 investigating the company's hosting of torrent tracker The Pirate Bay, said that no seizures had been made.

Earlier reports had suggested that the company was being raided in connection with WikiLeaks' disclosure of 76,000 classified US Defense department documents concerning the war in Afghanistan.

The publication of another 15,000 documents is expected in the next week.
