Assange Says WikiLeaks Team Aiding Snowden on Iceland

Julian Assange, founder and publisher of WikiLeaks, said his legal advisers have talked with lawyers for Edward Snowden to help arrange asylum in Iceland for the American contractor who leaked information on U.S. electronic surveillance methods to newspapers.

“We have been in touch with Mr. Snowden’s legal team,” Assange said on a telephone conference call with reporters today. “Our people in Iceland have been in contact with his legal team and the Icelandic government” and are “in the process of brokering his asylum in Iceland.”
