Julian Assange granted asylum

After unsuccessfully fighting extradition from Britain to Sweden for questioning on sexual assault charges filed by two different women, Wikileaks chief Julian Assange took refuge in Ecuador's London embassy on June 19, setting up a standoff between Ecuador and Britain. Ecuador later granted Assange asylum and he remains holed up at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
