07/26/12: BBC News reports Ecuador will allow Swedish authorities to interview WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at its embassy in London where he has taken refuge. Assange, who is Australian, arrived on June 19 and announced he was seeking political asylum. The anti-secrecy campaigner, whose website published secret US cables, wants to avoid being sent to Sweden to face charges of rape and sexual assault; he also faces arrest in the UK for breaching the terms of his bail if he leaves the embassy. But under international diplomatic arrangements, the police cannot enter to arrest him. Assange fears if he is sent to Sweden to face rape and assault accusations, he could be transferred to the US to face charges over WikiLeaks, where he could be given the death penalty.
