+ - Julian Assange Arrested in London->

Submitted by Orome1
Orome1 writes: WikiLeaks' founder and director Julian Assange has been arrested this Tuesday morning at 9.30am (GMT) at a police station in London. According to a statement by the Metropolitan police, he has been arrested based on a Swedish arrest warrant, and is scheduled to appear at City of Westminster magistrates court later today. Assange's British lawyers are claiming that he has still not been informed by the Swedish police of the full allegations against him, and that they will fight to stop the extradition process, since they believe the whole situation is the result of a smear campaign conducted by the US and are worried that somehow Assange could end up extradited to that country because US politicians are clamoring for getting him indicted for various charges — including terrorism.
