WikiLeaks fears Assange’s expulsion from embassy

British police stationed armed officers outside the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Friday after tweets from WikiLeaks quoted what it said were high-level sources saying that Julian Assange could be kicked out of the building within “hours to days”.

WikiLeaks on Thursday tweeted: “BREAKING — A high level source within the Ecuadorian state has told WikiLeaks that Julian Assange will be expelled within ‘hours to days’… and that it already has an agreement with the U.K. for his arrest.”

Another tweet said it had received a secondary confirmation from another high-level source. But a top official said while Ecuadorian President Lenín Moreno was angered by the apparent hacking of his personal communications, he denied WikiLeaks’ claim and said no decision had been taken to expel Mr. Assange from the embassy.
