British police have arrested WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London on a U.S. extradition request, a dramatic escalation in Washington’s long-running efforts to prosecute a man it accuses of running a foreign “hostile intelligence service.”
Hours after the arrest the U.S. Justice Department said Mr. Assange had been indicted in U.S. federal court on charges of a computer hacking conspiracy.
Mr. Assange was charged with one count of conspiracy to hack a computer related to his role in the 2010 release of reams of secret American documents.
