Assange Still Stuck in Embassy

It's tough being the man behind the world's biggest leak network. Julian Assange, head of Wikileaks, said on Thursday that he will have to wait six months to a year in Ecuador's embassy in London, as he waits for a deal to secure his release. Assange is wanted in Sweden, where he has been accused of an alleged sexual assault—but he has maintained he will be extradited to the U.S. if he goes to Sweden. Since Britain ordered his extradition last month, Assange has been hiding out in the Ecuadorian embassy since that nation offered him asylum.
