Image uploaded from a quicklink Rumors that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested in London are "false," the whistleblower website said on Saturday. Indymedia UK had reported that Assange, the 41-year-old Australian who sparked a diplomatic row when he was granted asylum by Ecuador, was arrested while secretly visiting a medical clinic five minutes from the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.
But Wikileaks vehemently denied the story, tweeting that "Reports of Julian #Assange arrest are false and derive from a fabricated story."
"Such media smears are common,"Wikileaks tweeted. "Reader beware."
Indymedia UK has ince 'hidden' the spurious article about Assange's arrest, citing a breach of editorial guidelines.
Assange has been hailed as a champion of free speech and transparency by progressives around the world, and by congressman Ron Paul. Wikileaks has nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize.
