Ecudorian embassy in London has granted asylum to Julian Assange this afternoon and the man himself is believed to have moved into the embassy building. British foreign office has issued a statement saying that-"the desicion to grant asylum to Assange is regretable and will carry out obligation to extradite Mr Assange to Sweden". Sweden has not issued any warrant to enforce the arrest nor detention of Mr Assange.The high-profile Australian former hacker has been holed up inside the red-brick embassy in central London for eight weeks since he lost a legal battle to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over rape allegations. Outside the embassy near London's famed Harrods department store, supporters made the announcement over a loudspeaker to cheers and clapping from protesters who had gathered outside the building in support of Assange. Before the decision was announced, Britain said it could use a little-known piece of legislation to strip Ecuador's embassy of its diplomatic status so that Assange could be detained. Britain has been trying to revoke the Ecuadorean embassy's diplomatic status for sometime claiming that they have a legal duty to extradite Mr Assange.
