Wikileaks' Julian Assange loses extradition appeal

Wikileaks' founder Julian Assange has lost his appeal against extradition to Sweden.

The Australian national has been accused of sexual assault on two counts against women in Stockholm last year.

Mr Assange denies these allegations and has said they are politically motivated.

The High Court has upheld a ruling in February by District Judge Howard Riddle allowing the extradition.

Mr Assange's lawyers intend to appeal at the Supreme Court.
