A seven-year rape investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was dropped by Swedish prosecutors on Friday. Director of Public Prosecution Marianne Ny "has decided to discontinue the investigation regarding suspected rape" by Assange, the Swedish Prosecution Authority said in a statement. Authorities began an investigation in 2010 after two women came forward accusing Assange of rape and sexual assault. He took refuge in Ecuador's Embassy in 2012 to escape extradition to Sweden to answer questions about sex-crime allegations from two women.
