Documents released by the Wikileaks website have suggested that senior members of the Chinese government co-ordinated cyber attacks on the search engine, Google.

The claims, which also say Beijing recruited a network of hackers to access secret US government and military information, have been published in The Observer newspaper.

China has called accusations that it had been involved in hacking "absurd".
