Wikileaks' Julian Assange was arrested today in Britain. The charges stem from an inquiry in Sweden, where he was accused of sex offenses.
"Officers from the Metropolitan Police extradition unit have this morning arrested Julian Assange on behalf of the Swedish authorities on suspicion of rape," the police said in a statement.

Assange was attending a scheduled meeting with police, following their announcement yesterday that 'all the paperwork' necessary to issue an arrest warrant had been received.
