Britain has received a European arrest warrant from Sweden for the Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange.
The warrant is being processed by the Serious Organised Crime Agency and will be sent to the Metropolitan Police as he is thought to be in the London area.
Mr Assange is wanted in Sweden to face sex allegations which he denies.
WikiLeaks: Whistleblowing or Treason?

WikiLeaks founder and spokesman Julian Assange has come under fire and an international arrest warrant on rape charges in Sweden. Sweden is claiming
that the charges against Assange — an Australian national — are “not political.” But the website RawStory.com reported
December 2 that the “rape” charge amounts to nothing more than the charge that Assange had engaged in consensual sex with two women without a condom and was subsequently unavailable for a required test for sexually transmitted diseases.
Assange's former lawyer told Raw Story that “apparently having consensual sex in Sweden without a condom is punishable by a term of imprisonment of a minimum of two years for rape.”
