Ecuador asks UK for help on embassy bug

Ecuador has asked the UK to help an investigation over alleged spying at its embassy in London where Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is living.

Ecuador named a British company it claimed planted a listening device in their ambassador's office but this was denied.

Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino told a news conference in Quito the bug was found last month when Ecuadorean technicians reviewed the embassy's wiring.
