Assange seeks asylum from Ecuador

In a last ditch effort to fight his extradition, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is seeking political asylum at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Last week, the British Supreme Court dismissed an appeal by Assange to reopen his appeal fighting for his extradition to Sweden. Swedish prosecutors want him questioned for complaints of sexual misconduct filed against him by two former employees. Assange fears that when extradited to Sweden, he might then be handed over to US authorities who will then charge him for leaking confidential US diplomatic cables on his website.
