Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, has said that he will accept arrest. 

Assange has been wanted for arrest since a British court ordered his extradition to Sweden to face questioning in a sexual molestation case involving two female supporters of the website. 

In response to the court's order, the Australian national took political asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy, where he has remained since 2012. 

The embassy has now cut Assange's internet, a move Wikileaks says came in response to the publication of documents on the site related to US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.

More on this as it develops.
