The US is expected to seek to extradite Julian Assange on conspiracy charges after the Ecuadorian embassy in London revoked his political asylum. The WikiLeaks founder was immediately arrested at the embassy and appeared in court on a charge of breaching bail. Assange was found guilty of the charge, and he is now slated to face a US extradition hearing on 2 May. Assange could be jailed for up to five years in the US if he is convicted of conspiring to break into a Department of Defense computer.
