Julian Assange Is In The UK's 'Guantanamo Bay'

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who was arrested on Thursday at the Ecuadorian Embassy, is being held in one of the UK's most notorious prisons.

Belmarsh, built in 1991 and located in southeast London, gained notoriety in the wake of the 9/11 attacks when foreigners were detained in the prison without being formally charged, leading some to call it 'Britain's Guantanamo Bay.
