Julian Assange Arrested In London

Assange was dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London early Thursday after Ecuador revoked his diplomatic asylum. On Thursday, that appeared to come to pass.

A collaborator of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested Thursday in Ecuador while trying to flee to Japan, the South American country's interior minister said.

In a tweet, WikiLeaks said Ecuador "has illegally terminated Assange political asylum in violation of worldwide law".

Sweden later dropped its investigation, but Assange remained at the embassy over fears Britain might extradite him to the United States in connection with WikiLeaks' publication of classified USA government documents.

"Mr. Assange will get the same support that any other Australian would ... he's not going to be given any special treatment", he said.

He tweeted: "The extradition of Julian Assange to the United States for exposing evidence of atrocities in Iraq and Afghanistan should be opposed by the British Government".

Strom said those reports had been published in newspapers such as the New York Times, Britain's the Guardian, and in Australia in the Sydney Morning Herald and the Melbourne Age. Julian Assange's journalism punctures those lies.

British police said he was arrested for skipping his bail in 2012 and on behalf of the USA due to an extradition warrant.

"I do, I do", she said.

Assange had claimed political asylum and had been living in the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012 following his release on bail while facing extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations. According to her tweet, the warrant was issued in December 2017 and is in relation to conspiracy with Chelsea Manning in 2010 for publishing classified information. "He will receive the same consular support as any other Australians would in these circumstances". "He will have to face the justice system".

"When Australians travel overseas and they find themselves in difficulties with the law, well they face the judicial systems of those countries, it doesn't matter what particular crime it is they've alleged to have committed", Morrison told ABC.
