CNN reports that Swedish law enforcement has arrested Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in absentia after it received complaints of rape and molestation. CNN did not report who made the charges; that information is apparently not forthcoming from Swedish authorities. Mr. Assange responded via Twitter, ""The charges are without basis and their issue at this moment is deeply disturbing."
According to the Swedish tabloid Expressen, Mr. Assange may surrender soon.
