WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrested at Ecuadorian embassy

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

Assange, 47, who has spent almost seven years at the embassy after seeking refuge there to avoid extradition to Sweden, was detained after the Ecuadorian government withdrew his asylum, Scotland Yard said.

He was held on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 29 June 2012 when he failed to surrender to the court.
