Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in extradition hearing

The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, is due to begin his legal battle against extradition from the UK to Sweden.

The Swedes want to question him over sex allegations made by two women, which he denies.

In a two-day hearing, his lawyers are expected to say that Swedish prosecutors had no right to issue a warrant for his arrest because he has not, as yet, been charged with any offences.

The BBC's Jon Brain reports.
