The Signal - - USA TODAY - From staff and wire re­ports

Ecuador granted cit­i­zen­ship to Wik­iLeaks founder Ju­lian As­sange, who has lived in asy­lum at the na­tion’s em­bassy in Lon­don for more than five years. As­sange sought refuge to avoid ex­tra­di­tion to Swe­den for in­ves­ti­ga­tion of sex-re­lated claims. Swe­den dropped the case, but As­sange was still subject to ar­rest in Bri­tain for jump­ing bail.
