WikiLeaks has released several thousand more cables it claims come from U.S. embassies in China and Libya.

WikiLeaks has released thousands of new cables that it claims come from U.S. embassies in Libya, China and Taiwan.

The group promised to release 35,000 cables late Tuesday, and is encouraging its Twitter followers to go through the documents and share what they’ve found in them using the hashtag #wlfind.

The group said after releasing the documents it suffered a sustained denial-of-service attack and was relying on backup servers.

In addition to the documents already out on the Web, WikiLeaks said it is also planning to drop information from Israel, Cuba, Germany, Iran, Afghanistan, Poland, France, Turkey, Romania, Rwanda, Russia, Venezuela, Indonesia, Syria, Somalia, Bahrain, South Africa and Yemen.
