Sweden Issues Arrest Warrant for WikiLeaks’ Assange

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange can be arrested on charges of rape and sexual molestation after a Swedish court approved an arrest warrant today, paving the way for an international search for the Australian.

“The background is that he must be interrogated in the investigation and we haven’t been able to reach him to perform these interrogations,” Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny said today in a statement before the hearing in Stockholm District Court.
