Julian Assange arrested in London after Ecuador withdraws asylum

London Metropolitan police has arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London. He has been holed up in the Embassy of Ecuador in London since 2012 in order to avoid a warrant against him. Ecuador withdrew Assange’s diplomatic asylum earlier today leading to his arrest.
A video has emerged of the moment of the arrest which shows a heavily bearded Assange being carried out of the embassy as he wags a finger and appears to say “the UK has no civility”.

This is the moment WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in central London – where he lived since 2012.
Police were invited into the embassy by the Ecuadorean ambassador – read the full story here:
