WikiLeaks' Assange denied bail

Arrested in connection with a sexual assault case, the founder of the whistle-blowing site will remain in custody until mid-December.

Julian Assange has been denied bail, and will be remanded in custody until mid-December, a magistrate ruled today.

Howard Riddle, chief magistrate of City of London Westminster magistrates court, deemed WikiLeaks editor Assange to be capable of breaking bail conditions.

"It's been said that it's quite clear that Mr. Assange has access to significant means if he wants them," said Riddle, who added that Assange had been accused of crimes of a serious sexual nature.
