Extra security ended for Ecuador embassy in London

The President of Ecuador has ordered the withdrawal of extra security for Julian Assange from its embassy in London.

In a statement, Lenin Moreno said the facility will now have normal security similar to that of other Ecuadorian embassies around the world.

Although prosecutors have abandoned their investigatiosn, British authorities are still seeking to arrest Assange.
