Wikileaks' next target will be a major American bank, the website's founder Julian Assange told Forbes magazine in an interview published on Monday.

Assange said that he is still has numerous unpublished documents that that the next batch will "give a true and representative insight into how banks behave at the executive level in a way that will stimulate investigations and reforms," and added "For this, there's only one similar example. It's like the Enron emails."

The Wikileaks founder said about fifty percent of his "trove of documents" is related to the private sector and that "it could take down a [US] bank or two," after the documents are released early next year.
