WATCH: Julian Assange Taken Into Custody


WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested to face a U.S. charge that he conspired to hack military computers after Ecuador's government ended his seven years of self-imposed exile and expelled him from its London embassy. 

The 47-year old Assange was arrested Thursday by authorities in Britain and is expected to be extradited to the U.S. to face charges.

According to USA Today, an indictment revealed Thursday morning that U.S. authorities allege Assange conspired with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to steal and publish classified documents. 

Prosecutors said it was one of the most extensive leaks of classified secrets in U.S. history.
