Police arrest Julian Assange at Ecuadoran Embassy In London

https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/11/uk/julian-assange-arrested-gbr-intl/index.html

Police entered the Ecuadorian embassy in London Thursday morning, arresting Julian Assange and bringing the Wikileaks founder's seven-year stint there to a dramatic close. 

Metropolitan Police said in a statement that he was "further arrested" on his arrival at a London police station on behalf of United States authorities, who have issued an extradition warrant.

Officers made the move after Ecuador withdrew Assange's asylum and invited authorities into the embassy, citing the Australian's bad behavior. 

Assange was initally detained for "failing to surrender to the court" over a warrant issued in 2012 and was in custody at a central London police station, police said.

Assange’s Swedish Rape Accuser Urges Reopening of Case Following His Arrest

The woman who accused Julian Assange of rape—leading him to seek asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012—has urged prosecutors to reopen the case now that he's been removed. Assange was dragged out of the embassy Thursday morning and has been arrested by British police for skipping bail seven years ago. The rape charges in Sweden were dropped in 2017—but the woman's lawyer has now told prosecutors that they must reopen the case and have the Wikileaks founder face justice.

finally. There was a buzz in late March about the U.S. arresting Assange. A DOJ plane had flown from the U.S. to London - and then nothing happened

It's crazy, Marci, but there's a segment of the population that could see him during the 2016 campaign praising Wikileaks and, today, after he played dumb or calls it "fake news" they'd call it all a lie by the media.  The other possibility and I think this is more scary.  They don't care.
