Sweden has rejected a request by Ecuador to interview Julian Assange in the South American country's embassy in London - that's according to Wikileaks Twitter feed. The whistleblower has been holed up in the embassy for the past six week seeking asylum in Ecuador. Assange wants to avoid being extradited to Sweden over sex crime allegations and fears he will then be sent to the US.
