Assange Loses Extradition Appeal

Wednesday, November 02, 2011

Two appeals judges in London ruled on Wednesday that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited to Sweden to face rape and sexual assault changes. Assange, who has been under house arrest in a country manor for months, maintains his innocence and contends the charges are politically motivated. Assange and his lawyers will have 14 days to seek an appeal on the European Arrest Warrant. Nick Childs, correspondent for the BBC, reports from the High Court in London.
