WikiLeaks Founder, Julian Assange Arrested In London
London’s Police say they have arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean embassy on a court warrant dating back to 2012.
In a statement Thursday, police said Assange has been taken into “custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates’ Court as soon as is possible.”
Assange has been staying at the embassy since August 2012 for fear of being arrested and extradited to the US if he leaves the Ecuador’s diplomatic soil.
He is wanted on the US for publishing classified US information.
