UK, Ecuador Aren't Speaking Over Assange Row

No phone calls, no letters ...


Ecuadorean embassy officials say they have had no contact with the UK for a week, after the country granted asylum to Julian Assange.

Mr Assange has been at Ecuador's London embassy since June in a bid to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex assault claims, which he denies.

Officials also told an embassy briefing it would be an indication of "good faith" if Britain withdrew its "threat" to arrest the Wikileaks founder.
