Should Britain force Ecuador to give up Assange?

The government of Ecuador has now said it will grant asylum to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Julian Assange has been holed up in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London for two months in an attempt to keep Britain from extraditing him to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over alleged sex crimes, according to the AP.

Britain on Thursday said it might revoke the diplomatic status of the embassy in order to allow Assange’s extradition.

The Ecuadoran government has said any attempt by Britain to remove the diplomatic status would be a "hostile and intolerable act,” Reuters reported.
