Wikileaks founder criticises extradition ruling

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has described an extradition hearing in the UK as a 'rubber stamping' process. He insists he is appealing against a decision to send him to Sweden to face allegations of rape and sexual assault.

The 39-year-old Australian is accused of committing the crimes in August whilst he was visiting Stockholm. He denies any wrongdoing.

Mr Assange, speaking outside the court said he always knew he would have to appeal.
