And so now Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been dragged out of his "sanctuary" in the London embassy of Ecuador for failing to clean his cat's litter box.

Sweden's Prosecution Authority said Thursday they were considering reopening the investigation against Assange.
The allegations by two women have not been tested in court and Assange has denied wrongdoing.
The Wikileaks founder will next appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court on May 2 by prison video-link in relation to the extradition.
The extradition process is not swift, and Assange could appeal several times if decisions go against him.
