WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange arrested and dragged out of embassy after US extradition request
Assange is wanted in the US over an investigation into WikiLeaks' leaking of classified documents concerning the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The US Department of Justice said the charge related specifically to conspiracy to commit computer intrusion with US whistleblower Chelsea Manning.
The WikiLeaks founder, who has been living at the Ecuadorian embassy since 2012, could be handed over to British authorities. President Lenin Moreno is in London apparently to meet with officials to finalize an agreement under which Ecuador will withdraw its asylum protection.
