Assange Too Ill To Appear In U.S. Extradition Hearing

Reuters reports WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was too ill on Thursday to appear via video link from a British prison in a hearing on an extradition request from the United States.

This is according to his lawyer.

The United States is seeking the extradition of Assange, age 47, who was dragged from the Ecuadorean embassy in London on April 11.

He faces a total of 18 U.S. criminal counts and decades in prison if convicted.
