WikiLeaks Founder Wanted on Rape Charges
An arrest warrant has been issued in Sweden for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on suspicion of rape. Assange has responded the claims on Twitter, tweeting, "the charges are without basis and their issue at this moment is deeply disturbing." The charges were first reported by a Swedish tabloid, and officials later confirmed "media reports that a foreign citizen has been arrested in absentia," but didn't name Assange, an Australian citizen, by name, Police said in a statement, "The arrest refers to two separate events, one complaint of molestation and one complaint of rape… The person is arrested in absentia, as there is a risk that he could obstruct the investigation." The tabloid said prosecutors confirmed Assange was the target. WikiLeaks tweeted that, "We were warned to expect 'dirty tricks.' Now we have the first one." It added that no one from the group has been contacted by the police. Assange has angered many Western governments by posting top secret documents about the war in Afghanistan that their militaries say put troops and Afghan civilians in harm's way.
