A new film takes a close look at the founding of the Wikileaks website.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Laura Poitras’ long-awaited documentary film on controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will make its television debut in the United States.
A computer, a treadmill, a cat - Julian Assange does not have many diversions. The WikiLeaks founder has been holed up at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London since 2012, with no sign he will be able to leave anytime soon.
Julian Assange's arrest is a priority for the US, according to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. DW's Matthias von Hein says pursuing charges against the Wikileaks founder would be an attack on press freedom.
After an earlier hardline stance, Ecuador's new president Lenin Moreno says the Wikileaks boss can stay at its London embassy. The Australian has been fighting extradition to Sweden on rape charges since 2012.
