WikiLeaks's main server in France has gone offline, preventing many users from accessing the US State Department cables and other documents the site has posted online, a group of Swiss supporters said Sunday.

The president of the Swiss Pirate Party, which controls the wikileaks.ch Web address, said he was in the process of pointing that domain name to a different server, apparently based in Sweden.

"The WikiLeaks server in France seems to have been switched off," Denis Simonet told The Associated Press. "We're now pointing the domain to another address. That's going to take a few hours."

In the meantime, the site is still reachable through the numerical address of its Swedish server, Simonet said.
