GENEVA -- The founder of the group Wikileaks is urging U.S. authorities to probe alleged rights abuses in Afghanistan and Iraq instead of focusing on tracking down who leaked that information to his group.

Australian-born Julian Assange says the U.S. hasn't opened any probes into the alleged incidents detailed in documents published by Wikileaks beginning in July.

Officials at the U.S. mission in Geneva could not immediately be reached for comment.

Assange spoke Thursday on the eve of the first comprehensive review at the United Nations of the U.S. human rights record.
