    British police arrested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at the Ecuadorian embassy in London on Thursday, a move they made in response to a U.S. extradition request on charges that he aided the hacking of classified material on U.S. government computers in 2010.

    The indictment, revealed Thursday by the Justice Department and dated March 6, 2018, alleges Assange aided former U.S. intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning with "cracking a password stored on U.S. Department of Defense computers" that contained classified documents and secrets. He is charged with "conspiracy to commit computer intrusion."
