"These officials are spies for the US in their countries," Assange said in the second part of his interview with Arab television network Al Jazeera. He said the leaked documents in his possession show that Arab officials reveal sensitive information on their colleagues and respective countries.


The WikiLeaks founder said the website would consider exposing the names of the Arab officials only if it would be certain it would not lead to their death.


Assange warned that the revelations may lead to dangerous coups in the Arab world. He added that WikiLeaks plans to reveal some 7,000 documents related to Egypt and its president, Hosni Mubarak.


Other leaked documents, he said, reveal information on the oil industry in the Arab world over the past few decades.
