Julian Assange is subject to arrest for breaking the terms of his bail, London's Metropolitan Police said Wednesday, after the WikiLeaks founder attempted to claim asylum at the embassy of Ecuador in Britain.
Assange was arrested in Britain in 2010 because Swedish authorities want to question him about allegations of rape and sexual molestation.
His bail conditions included staying every night at the home of a supporter outside of London.
Police were notified Tuesday night that he had breached that condition, they said Wednesday morning.
"He is now subject to arrest under the Bail Act for breach of these conditions," they said.
It is not clear that they will be able to arrest him, since diplomatic protocol prevents authorities from entering foreign embassies.
Assange has requested political asylum in Ecuador, officials and WikiLeaks said Tuesday.FULL STORY
