Julian Assange expected to make statement

Julian Assange is expected to make a public statement today on the diplomatic row that has engulfed him since being granted asylum by Ecuador.

The Wikileaks founder reportedly plans to speak outside the Ecuadorean embassy in London where he has taken refuge.

He faces extradition to Sweden over sexual assault claims, which he denies.

Ben Geoghegan reports.
