Assange to address United Nations
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is due to make a speech to the United Nations on the eve of the 100th day since he sought political asylum at the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
Mr Assange will speak to a UN meeting in New York over a satellite link.
He arrived at the embassy on June 19 as part of his bid to avoid extradition to Sweden where he faces sex allegations.
Mr Assange fears he will be extradited to the United States over the activities of the whistle-blowing website if he travels to Sweden.
He was granted political asylum by the government of Ecuador last month and has remained in the embassy ever since.
Ecuador's foreign minister Ricardo Pantino will address the United Nations on the subject of political asylum, referring specifically to the Assange case.
