Wikileaks founder and owner Julian Assange has been taken into custody by British authorities.
“Assange was arrested on a Westminster Magistrates’ Court warrant which was issued on June 29, 2012, for failing to surrender to court,” Metropolitan Police said in a statement. He had been staying at the Ecuador embassy for years until they revoked his stay. Assange was arrested moments later.
Update: Assange is being charged in the US with one count of conspiracy to commit computer hacking. He had agreed to assist Chelsea Manning with cracking a government password in order to find more documents. It is not clear whether the attempt was successful, or even actually attempted on the part of Assange.
