Julian Assange 'buoyed by support' says mother

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has been "buoyed" by the public's support since he sought refuge in Ecuador's London embassy, his mother has said.

Christine Assange said she had spoken to her son over the weekend and he was in "good spirits".

Mr Assange is seeking diplomatic asylum to prevent him being extradited to Sweden to face accusations of rape and assault, which he denies.
