Julian Assange loses latest bid to halt US extradition

A UK court has rejected an attempted appeal by the WikiLeaks' founder who is fighting extradition to the US, Ednews reports via Euronews.
WikiLeaks' founder Julian Assange has lost another attempt to block his extradition from the UK to the US, according to a court order published on Friday.
The 51-year-old is facing 18 charges in the US over the release of a series of confidential US military documents and diplomatic cables.
The judge at the UK's High Court, Jonathan Swift, turned down Assange's most recent appeal against extradition on the grounds that it would simply "re-run" arguments that have previously been made.
