(FOREIGN) Julian Assange Faces Jail For UK Bail Breach



   WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will be sentenced Wednesday  for breaching a British court order seven years ago, when he took refuge in Ecuador's London embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden.

  The Australian whistleblower, who was arrested on April 11 after Ecuador gave him up, could face a 12-month prison sentence when he appears at Southwark Crown Court at 10.30am local time (0930GMT).

  Assange fled to the embassy in 2012 after a British judge ordered his extradition to face Swedish allegations of sexual assault and rape, which he strongly denied.
