Whistleblower website WikiLeaks says it will release another secret recording of a US military attack in which American warplanes "massacre" Afghan civilians.
Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange says he has obtained a video of the US killings around the east Afghanistan village of Gerani in 2009 in which more than 140 Afghan civilians, including 92 children, were slaughtered, UK media reported on Wednesday.
"The clip will show previously classified footage from US warplanes that had been tapped to bomb Taliban positions in Farah province, Afghanistan last year," the British newspaper The Daily Telegraph quoted a WikiLeaks "email sent to supporters."
"The Afghan government said at the time that the strikes by F-18 and B1 planes near Gerani killed 147 civilians. An independent Afghan inquiry later put the toll at 86," the paper added.
Assange fears the website might come under attack after US authorities said they were searching for the site's founder following the arrest of a US soldier accused of leaking the Afghanistan video and another of a US attack in the Iraq capital Baghdad in which a number of other civilians were killed, The Guardian, another British daily reported Wednesday.
WikiLeaks' release of the Baghdad video in April drew worldwide fire over the US military's indiscriminate killings in Iraq.
The website is reportedly preparing the film of the Afghan village bombing described by the UK media as potentially harrowing.
The American military officials had initially said that they had bombarded Afghan militants' strongholds but later admitted to "mistakes" in the attacks.
The US has reportedly used mass-killing weapons in the operation, including 1,000 kilogram bombs and others that burst before touchdown to maximize casualties.
It also failed to check whether or not women and children were sheltered in the buildings.
