WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange fears he may be assassinated if he steps outside the Ecuadorian embassy. In an interview with The Times Magazine, Mr Assange said he has not had any fresh air or sunlight for three years because it is too dangerous to leave the building. He told the magazine: “There are security issues with being on the balcony. There have been bomb threats and assassination threats from various people.” Despite believing it is “not likely” that he will be shot, he worries that if he is ever free he could be kidnapped or “droned” by the CIA.
