Julian Assange Arrested in London, Charged with Conspiracy to Hack U.S. Gov't Computer
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested and dragged out of the Ecuadorian embassy in London by British police in a dramatic scene Thursday, ending his nearly seven-year stay at the embassy.
Video of Assange’s arrest showed him looking frail with a full white beard, and clutching an unidentified document or magazine, yelling, "UK resist! UK resist!"
The 47-year-old Australian native is wanted in the U.S. for publishing thousands of classified military and diplomatic cables on the WikiLeaks website.
A statement on the U.S. Dept. of Justice website says Assange was arrested "in connection with a federal charge of conspiracy to commit computer intrusion for agreeing to break a password to a classified U.S. government computer."
In an interview with ABC News yesterday, Jennifer Robinson said that Assange "is an Australian citizen who is a publisher who is being sought for prosecution in the United States, an Australian ally for publishing truthful information."
