Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange arrested in London

Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, the BBC reported.

Assange took refuge in the embassy seven years ago to avoid extradition to Sweden over a sexual assault case that has since been dropped.

The Met Police said he was arrested for failing to surrender to the court.

Ecuador’s President Lenin Moreno said it withdrew Assange’s asylum after his repeated violations to international conventions.
