WikiLeaks Rep: Assange Fears Torture in U.S.

Police in London have said Julian Assange could face arrest for violating the terms of his bail. Citing the case of Bradley Manning, a WikiLeaks spokesperson said Assange ultimately fears extradition to the United States.

Kristinn Hrafnsson: "The big worry is an extradition to the United States. We all know what has happened to Bradley Manning there. He was held in a situation that is equal to torture. That is even — you can find in a statement by the United Nations rapporteur on torture. And so that is a true, true worry."
