U.K. High Court Rules Julian Assange Can Appeal U.S. Extradition

In news from Britain, the High Court in London has granted permission to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to appeal his extradition to the United States. The decision came after a critical hearing in London that Assange did not attend due to health reasons. Assange has been held in London’s Belmarsh Prison for five years. If extradited and convicted in the U.S., he faces up to 175 years in prison. We’ll have more on this later in the show.
