Wikileaks founder claims smear campaign

Swedish prosecutor is trying to decide how to deal with sex allegations.



    Prosecutors in Sweden are trying to decide how to deal with sex allegations against Julian Assange, the founder of the whistleblowing website Wikileaks.

    The accusations were made by two women, but rape charges were dropped after one of them said her sexual relations with Assange were consensual.

    However, Assange remains under investigation for alleged molestation.
