Ruptly is live outside the Westminster Magistrates Court in London on Thursday, May 2, as a hearing on a US request to extradite WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for one of the largest ever leaks of classified information takes place. Assange is expected to appear via video-link during the hearing.
Assange is accused of conspiring with former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into US military intelligence files.
On Wednesday, Assange was sentenced to 50 weeks in jail for violating a UK court order in 2012 when seeking asylum in London’s Ecuador embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.
