Ecuador due to rule on Wikileaks' Julian Assange

Ecuador is examining the asylum case of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, the country's president has said.

Kristinn Hrafnsson, friend of Mr Assange, journalist and spokesperson for the WikiLeaks organisation, told the BBC that as far as they were aware, his application was still being considered, and the 40-year-old was "in good spirits".

It is understood he is preparing to spend a third night in the embassy while inquiries by Ecuadorian diplomats continue.
