Extradition of Julian Assange approved by UK judge

A British judge approved the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on April 20. Assange watched the ruling from Belmarsh Prison, where he has been held since he was expelled from the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. Assange faces a host of charges in the U.S., including spying. The charges relate to the publication of classified documents on the WikiLeaks platform that occurred more than 10 years ago. In approving the extradition, the judge gives the authority over the case to the interior minister of the U.K.
