Wikileaks founder Julian Assange can be extradited from the UK to the US, the High Court has ruled.
The US won its appeal against a January UK court ruling that he could not be extradited due to concerns over his mental health.
Judges were reassured by US promises to reduce the risk of suicide. His fiancée said they intended to appeal.
Giving the judgement, Lord Chief Justice Lord Burnett said: “That risk is in our judgement excluded by the assurances which are offered.

“It follows that we are satisfied that, if the assurances had been before the judge, she would have answered the relevant question differently.”
Assange is wanted in the US over the publication of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011.
