LONDON — British Foreign Secretary William Hague says that the U.K. will not allow Assange safe passage out of the country.
Hague said Thursday that Britain would not grant Assange safe passage because "there is no legal basis for us to do so."
He said Assange was wanted in Sweden to answer allegations of "serious sexual offenses." He said the extradition had nothing to do with the work of WikiLeaks or with a desire by U.S. authorities to try him for publishing diplomatic secrets.
