Wikileaks warrant 'issued to UK'

Swedish authorities have made a fresh request to UK police to extradite Wikileaks founder Julian Assange following sex crime allegations.

The prosecutors drew up a second European Arrest Warrant, after the first was rejected on legal grounds.

"We sent it. They asked for complementary information and now they have it," Swedish Prosecution Authority spokeswoman Karin Rosander said.

Mr Assange, who has released thousands of secret files, denies the claims.

The UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca), which processes European Arrest Warrants, declined to confirm whether the request had been received.
