UK state actor severs internet of Assange
LONDON, Oct 17 (Al Jazeera): WikiLeaks says that founder Julian Assange's internet access has been cut by an unidentified state actor.
The whistle-blowing organisation said on Twitter on Monday that they have activated their "contingency plans" after its co-founder's internet service was intentionally cut off.
The internet is one of the few available means through which Assange can maintain contact with the outside world.
