WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Denied Bail

According to Hrafnsson, WikiLeaks operations will be run by a group of people from London and other locations.
Assange has been arrested by the UK police earlier this morning on an arrest warrant from Sweden, where he is accused of sexual crimes.

The arrest piled onto the huge heap of problems for WikiLeaks, which has been battered by DDoS attacks in the past couple of weeks, as well as denied services

Update: Julian Assange just had an article posted in The Australian, asking the Australian government to stand behind him (Assange is an Australian citizen) and explaining that WikiLeaks is, in his opinion, unjustly attacked although other media outlets have published the same embassy cables as WikiLeaks.
“WikiLeaks is not the only publisher of the US embassy cables. Other media outlets, including Britain’s The Guardian, The New York Times, El Pais in Spain and Der Spiegel in Germany have published the same redacted cables. Yet it is WikiLeaks, as the co-ordinator of these other groups, that has copped the most vicious attacks and accusations from the US government and its acolytes,” writes Assange.
Claiming that WikiLeaks have created a new type of journalism, called scientific journalism, which gives the reader the opportunity to check the actual document behind a news story, Assange asserts that WikiLeaks is not a danger to society or the national security of any country. “WikiLeaks has a four-year publishing history. During that time we have changed whole governments, but not a single person, as far as anyone is aware, has been harmed,” writes Assange.
