STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Sweden's state prosecutor will announce next Monday whether or not she will reopen a preliminary investigation into a rape allegation against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

"At (a) press conference, the prosecutor will announce her decision, which will formally be made immediately before the press conference," the Prosecution Authority said in a statement.
