Julian Assange may face embassy questioning

  • Ecuador is to allow the Swedish authorities to speak to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange at its London embassy where he has taken refuge.

    The 40-year-old Australian arrived on June 19 seeking political asylum.

    The campaigner, whose website published secret U.S. cables, is seeking to avoid being sent to Sweden to face rape and assault allegations, which he denies.

    He faces arrest for breaching the terms of his bail if he leaves the embassy as under international diplomatic arrangements, the police cannot enter to arrest him.
