Submission + - Ecuador Grants Asylum to Julian Assange (guardian.co.uk)

paulmac84 writes: "The Guardian are live blogging the Ecuadorian Foreign Minister's announcement that Ecuador is to grant asylum to Julian Assange. In the announcement Minister Patino said, "We can state that there is a risk that he will be persecuted politically... We trust the UK will offer the necessary guarantees so that both governments can act adequately and properly respect international rights and the right of asylum. We also trust the excellent relationship the two countries have will continue.". The Guardian also carries a translated copy of the letter the UK sent to Ecuador regarding the threat to "storm" the Ecuadorian embassy."
