Swedish prosecutor, Ingrid Isgren, has arrived at Ecuador’s embassy to question WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over a sex allegation.
Swedish police will also be present as questions are put to Assange by an Ecuadorian official inside the country’s embassy in London.
Assange was granted political asylum by Ecuador in 2012 and has lived in their embassy ever since.
He insists that if he leaves, he will be extradited to the US for questioning over the activities of Wikileaks.
Assange has always denied the allegations against him, and has offered to be interviewed at the embassy several times.
Ecuador’s foreign minister, Guillaume Long, has welcomed the move.
