Ecuador 'acted on principle' over Assange says minister

Ecuador's Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino says that neither the UK, Sweden nor the US can guarantee that the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will not face prosecution in America for releasing secret documents through his website.

In a interview with BBC Mundo, Mr Patino said he expects the UK to respect his country's sovereign decision on Julian Assange's asylum case.
