The whistle-blowing website is back online, using the Swiss domain name wikileaks.ch, after an American provider withdrew its services, reportedly because of hacker attacks.

Meanwhile, Britain's The Independent reports that Swedish prosecutors filed a new warrant for the arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is wanted in Sweden over allegations of sex crimes. Assange is believed to be in England, and is defending this week's disclosure of thousands of confidential diplomatic cables.  We speak with Jonathan Marcus, the BBC's diplomatic correspondent.

This segment aired on December 3, 2010.
