WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Will be Extradited To US, Says, UK Court

A UK court on Wednesday issued a formal order to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to the United States. To face trial over the publication of secret files relating to the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

The decision now rests with interior minister Priti Patel, although Assange’s lawyers may still appeal to the High Court if she approves the extradition.
