WikiLeaks Says It's Leaking Over 500,000 Saudi Documents

WikiLeaks announced Friday it is publishing more than 500,000 Saudi diplomatic documents to the Internet, a move that echoes its famous release of U.S. State Department cables in 2010.
The transparency website said in a statement that it has already posted roughly 60,000 files. Most of them appear to be in Arabic.
There was no immediate way to verify the authenticity of the documents, although WikiLeaks has a long track record of hosting large-scale leaks of government material.
If real, the documents would offer a rare glimpse into the inner workings of the notoriously opaque kingdom. They might also shed light on Riyadh's longstanding regional rivalry with Iran, its support for Syrian rebels and Egypt's military-backed government.
