A supporter of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange holds up a placard outside the Ecuadorian Embassy in central London. Assange entered the embassy in June in an attempt to gain political asylum to prevent him from being extradited to Sweden, where he faces allegations of sex crimes, which he denies. Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino announced Thursday that he had granted political asylum to Assange, on the grounds he faces a serious threat of unjust prosecution at the hands of U.S. officials, a nod to the fears expressed by Assange and others that the Swedish sex case is merely the opening gambit in a Washington-orchestrated plot to make him stand trial in the United States.
