NEW YORK (AP) - WikiLeaks says Amazon.com kicked its website from its servers, forcing the site to move back to a Swedish provider.

Sen. Joe Leiberman says the move by Amazon.com Inc. comes after congressional staffers called the company Tuesday to inquire about its relationship with WikiLeaks.

The site, which just released a trove of sensitive U.S. State Department documents, took up residence on Amazon’s self-service Web servers after a rash of Internet-based attacks started Sunday against its Swedish host, Bahnhof.

The attacks made access to the site a hit and miss affair. The site was also unavailable for hours on Wednesday, as Amazon’s servers stopped responding to requests.

Amazon.com would not comment on its relationship with WikiLeaks.
