View of the Interpol 'wanted' page for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange taken in Washington on December 3, 2010. ikiLeaks faced growing pressure as its founder dealt with a new arrest warrant and death threats, while the website hopped around the globe trying to evade efforts to shut it down. As the fallout grew from its release of secret US diplomatic cables, the whistleblower site found new domain names in a string of European countries after its original wikileaks.org address was shut down by an American provider. The elusive Assange, who is believed to be in hiding in Britain, faced fresh trouble as Swedish prosecutors sent out a new international arrest warrant for the 39-year-old Australian over sex assault allegations.
