Andrei This might generate left wing conspiracy theories galore

Update: The arrest warrant has been withdrawn.

STOCKHOLM — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is wanted in Sweden where he has been accused of rape, the prosecutor's office said Saturday.
"Julian Assange is wanted for two different issues, one of them is that he's suspected of rape in Sweden," the director of communications Karin Rosander told AFP.
He was unable to say what the other accusation was or whether the search warrant was international.
According to the Swedish daily Expressen, the 39-year-old Australian is also wanted for assaulting a woman.
Assange was in Sweden last week, where he announced at a press conference that the whistleblower website was set to publish a final batch of 15,000 secret documents on the war in Afghanistan in "a couple of weeks."
