Julian Assange: Sajid Javid signs US extradition request
A request by the US to extradite Julian Assange has been signed by the Home Secretary Sajid Javid ahead of a court hearing on Friday.
By certifying the request, Mr Javid has effectively rubber-stamped it so it can now be considered by the court.
Assange will appear via video before Westminster magistrates on Friday.
The US wants the Wikileaks founder to face charges there related to the leaking of government secrets. Assange opposes the extradition request.
