AN ATTEMPTED break-in at the Ecuadorian embassy where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is living was foiled this morning.
Security was scrambled at the London building sparking international concern Assange was the target of the intruder.
A statement was put out by WikiLeaks this morning.
It stated: “16 mins ago at 2:47am a “cat burgler” scaled the side wall+window of the Ecuadorian embassy in London; fled after being caught by security.”
Mr Assange has been living inside the embassy for more than four years and has been granted political asylum by Ecuador.
