US charges WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange with espionage

Updated : May 24, 2019 02:34 PM IST

The superseding indictment comes a little more than a month after the Justice Department unsealed a narrower criminal case against Assange.
Assange was initially charged with conspiring with Manning to gain access to a government computer as part of a 2010 leak by WikiLeaks of hundreds of thousands of US military reports about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
He now faces a total of 18 criminal counts and could face many decades in prison if convicted.
