New arrest warrant received for founder of Wikileaks

A fresh arrest warrant has been received in the UK for the founder of the website Wikileaks, Julian Assange.

Over the last week his whistle blowing website has published hundreds of secret American diplomatic documents angering and embarrassing the US government.

His supporters claim the warrant is a way of silencing him - Mr Assange is wanted in Sweden for questioning about allegations of sexual assault.

The BBC's Security Correspondent Frank Gardner has the latest.
