Wikileak documents set to be released on Saturday will expose more information about the United States Iraq war including details about Iraqi civilian deaths, detainee abuse, and Iran's involvement in Iraq, according to a New York Times report on Friday.

In documents made available to the New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde and Der Spiegel, Wikileaks provides fresh information on such subjects such as the deaths of Iraqi civilians by Iraqi and American forces, abuse and torture of prisoners by Iraqi allies and the intervention of Iran who "intervened aggressively in support of Shi'ite combatants, offering weapons, training and sanctuary and in a few instances directly engaging American troops."

The Pentagon condemned the release earlier Friday.
