Following the release of more than 90,000 classified military documents on whistle-blowing site Wikileaks on Sunday, founder Julian Assange will be taking part in a special event at the Frontline Club this Tuesday evening.

Assange will be talking about the impact of the documents that were released in partnership with The Guardian, the New York Times and German paper Der Spiegel which chronicle in minute detail US military operations in the country between 2004 and 2010.

He will also discuss the journalistic implications of the way the information has been released as well as talking through the possibilities for journalists and citizens using the vast amount of data available online.

The event is chaired by regular Frontline moderator Paddy O’Connell, the presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Broadcasting House.
