'Julian Assange is free', has left Britain: WikiLeaks

Julian Assange “is free” and has been released from a high-security London prison where he was held for five years, his Wikileaks organisation said Tuesday, after reaching a US plea deal.

The 52-year-old Australian was taken Monday from Belmarsh prison to London’s Stansted airport, a Wikileaks statement said, from where he boarded a flight to an unnamed destination.
