Coinciding with a visit from President Obama

The 186-page affidavit claims America stole evidence about "a war crime perpetrated by U.S. forces in Afghanistan."

WikiLeaks filed a criminal complaint in Sweden on Tuesday ahead of the arrival of President Obama and a U.S. delegation.

The complaint — the first of four WikiLeaks says it has planned — concerns the "unlawful seizure" of WikiLeaks property in 2010, just after the group published thousands of classified U.S. intelligence cables pertaining to the war in Afghanistan.

The 186-page affidavit claims the United States stole evidence about "a war crime perpetrated by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in which more than sixty women and children were killed."
