LONDON (Reuters) – A British judge ruled on Monday that WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange should not be extradited to the United States to face charges of breaking a spying law and conspiring to hack government computers.

Judge Vanessa Baraitser said she had refused his extradition to the United States because of fears that he could commit suicide.
