Assange took refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London in 2012 after he was released on bail in Britain while facing extradition to Sweden on sexual assault allegations that have since been dropped.
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested by the United Kingdom police on Thursday from the Ecuador embassy, where he has remained for seven years, and a British court has convicted him for breaching his bail conditions in 2012.
The US Justice Department alleges that the WikiLeaks founder conspired with former US Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to leak military and diplomatic documents in the public domain.

"He won't be getting special treatment from Australia. He was detained this afternoon", she told Sonorama radio station.
