Sweden Reopens Assange Rape Investigation

Reuters reports Prosecutors in Sweden decided Monday that they will re-open their investigation into claims that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange raped a woman there in 2010.

He was first accused in 2010, but the case was disrupted by Assange's almost seven-year stay as a political asylum seeker in Ecuador's London embassy.

Eva-Marie Persson, a senior Swedish prosecutor, said she would pursue the case as she believes there is probable cause to try him.
