Lawyers for Julian Assange, held in Britain over allegations of sex crimes in Sweden, will try again on Tuesday (today) to win bail for the WikiLeaks founder who provoked US fury by publishing secret diplomatic cables. The 39-year-old Australian handed himself in to British police last week after Sweden issued a European arrest warrant. Assange was accused this year of sexual misconduct by two female Swedish WikiLeaks volunteers during a stay in Sweden. A Swedish prosecutor wants to question him about the accusations. Assange, who denies the allegations, was remanded in custody at an initial British court hearing last week. Assange and his lawyers have voiced fears that US prosecutors may be preparing to indict him for espionage after the WikiLeaks website published details of some of a trove of 250,000 secret U.S. documents it has obtained.
