Democracy Now: U.K. Withdraws Threat to Storm Ecuadorean Embassy


The British government has withdrawn its threat to seize WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange from his place of refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy in London. Ecuador says it received notice from Britain over the weekend that there is “no threat to enter the embassy.” Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa hailed the news.

Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa: “We consider this unhappy incident to be over. A grave British diplomatic error, no? to say they are going to enter our embassy. But we consider (this) over. However, I hope they (the British) don’t distort what happened.”
