Paypal says it has stopped dealing with Wikileaks

The internet payments company, PayPal, says it has stopped doing business with the website Wikileaks.

Senior executive, Osama Bedier, said the US government had written to the company claiming Wikileaks was involved in illegal activities.

The website has angered Washington by publishing thousands of classified American diplomatic cables.

The credit card companies, Mastercard and Visa have also suspended business with Wikileaks.
