Visa Again Blocks Funds For Wikileaks

In an email to The Associated Press, the company said that one of its financial partners had "briefly accepted payments on a merchant site linked to WikiLeaks." "As soon as this came to our attention, action was taken with the suspension of Visa payment acceptance to the site remaining in place," the company said.
