Assange calls for prosecutor to attend UK hearing

Julian Assange has called on the Swedish prosecutors to attend his extradition hearing in the UK.

The hearing heard that "proper procedure" was not followed in the investigation of two rape claims.

Sven-Erik Alhem, a witness, said it was "quite peculiar" that authorities did not get the Wikileaks founder's version of events before seeking his arrest.

Mr Assange, 39, denies claims of sexual assault against two women.
