120 0

The United States on Thursday announced charges against Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, who was arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London earlier, accusing him of helping Chelsea Manning break into classified computers at the Pentagon.

According to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS), Assange was taken into custody at a central London police station “where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates’ Court as soon as possible.”

The MPS said that the force was invited into the embassy by the ambassador, following the Ecuadorian government’s withdrawal of asylum.

Footage shot by Ruptly, a video news agency, showed a frantic-looking Assange, with a large white beard, being carried down the embassy steps by several men into a police van.
