LONDON (AP) - The furor over WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's future continues to swirl as he remains holed up in Ecuador's Embassy in London after an extraordinary display of brinkmanship between Britain and the South American country.
The lanky 41-year-old Australian is the subject of an international tug-of-war, with Swedish prosecutors seeking to question him about alleged sexual misconduct and Britain refusing to let him travel to Ecuador as it offers him asylum.
Britain said Friday it can't allow Assange safe passage because of the European arrest warrant demanding his return to Sweden. The UK also has said it may use a little-known law to revoke the Ecuadorean embassy's status so that Assange could be taken into custody and extradited to Sweden.
