Julian Assange gets asylum from Ecuador


Various media sources are reporting early Thursday, Aug. 16, that Ecuador has granted asylum to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

The “fugitive” is holed up at the embassy of Ecuador in London, resisting extradition to Sweden.  It’s not immediately clear that he can actually travel to Ecuador.

The CNN story, with various videos, is here

MSN also announced it as breaking news.

I got an email with an attachment on the matter first from Wikileaks, and I thought it might be spam!
