WikiLeaks' Julian Assange Agrees to be Questioned in London

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has agreed to be questioned about allegations that he sexually assaulted two women in 2010, his lawyer said. The questioning will take place at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where Assange has been living since June 2012 to avoid being extradited to Sweden in connection with the sex assault case. Assange denies the allegations. Swedish prosecutors, who originally requested to hold the questioning in Sweden, changed the location to London last month. The Australian publisher has said he fears that going to Sweden could open the door to extradition to the United States, where he could be tried for his role in one of the largest information leaks in U.S. history.
