Journalists are occupying the pavement outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London where Julian Assange has seeked asylum. Assange has been taking refuge in London since June where he is seeking asylum to avoid extradition to Sweden on allegations of rape, fearing Stockholm will turn him over to the United States. Since taking refuge in the embassy a warrant has been issued for his arrest for breaching his bail conditions.
