The founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, appeared for an extradition hearing today in London.  British lawyers representing Swedish prosecutors argued that Assange should be extradited to Sweden to face sexual misconduct allegations.  Assange’s lawyers have pointed out he’s yet to be charged with anything and they say they fear he could be sent to the US to face charges for leaking secret State Department documents.  The BBC’s Gabriel Gatehouse joins us from London.
