"WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has lost a legal battle to stop him being extradited from the United Kingdom to Sweden to face accusations of sexual assault. Speaking outside London’s High Court and flanked by supporters, the Australian maintained his innocence and questioned the arrest warrant used by the Swedish authorities demanding his return to Stockholm. In bright sunshine on the court steps he said: 'I have not been charged with any crime in any country. Despite this, the European Arrest Warrant is so restrictive it prevents UK courts from considering the facts of a case as judges have made clear here today. We will be considering our next step in the days ahead.'" (11/02/11)
