UK Meets with Ecuador over Assange

Ecuador has asked Britain whether fugitive WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange might be allowed to leave his London hideout for medical treatment, as the two countries met Thursday to seek to end a deadlock over the activist’s fate.

Assange has sheltered inside Ecuador’s embassy in London, beyond the reach of British police, since June 19 — a total of 100 days. He is seeking to avoid extradition to Sweden for questioning over sex crimes allegations.
