WikiLeaks founder intends to keep leaking
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said he is determined to continue releasing secret documents, despite being held on remand in a British jail. Mr Assange, 39, said his "convictions are unfaltering", in a statement read out by his mother on Australian TV. The Australian, who faces extradition to Sweden over sex offence claims, will appear in court later to ask for bail.
His website recently embarrassed the US by publishing thousands of classified diplomatic cables. Mr Assange, who denies sexually assaulting two women in Sweden, was remanded in custody last week, ahead of a full extradition hearing. His lawyers have repeatedly claimed that the charges against him are politically motivated.
