WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange denied internet access by Ecuador govt. over US elections leaks
Ecuador has acknowledged it partly restricted internet access for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who is taking refuge at its London embassy.
It said Mr Assange had in recent weeks released material that could have an impact on the US presidential election.
Ecuador also said its move was not the result of pressure from Washington.
The US denied WikiLeaks accusations that it had asked Ecuador to stop the site publishing documents about presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Transparency activist Julian Assange has sought asylum at London’s Ecuadorean embassy since 2012 to avoid extradition to Sweden over sex assault allegations.
