WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for more than a year. Assange says he will not leave his sanctuary, even if Sweden stops pursuing sexual assault claims against him because he fears he will be deported to the U.S. over the publication of hundreds of thousands of military and diplomatic documents on his website.
