Assange Extradition Upheld by British Court

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange speaks at a news conference in London, February 27, 2012. 

Britain's Supreme Court upheld the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to Sweden over alleged sex crimes on Wednesday.

Seven judges at the country's highest court rejected by a majority of 5-2 that Assange's claim that a European Arrest Warrant under which his extradition is sought was invalid.

Two lower courts have already ruled he should be extradited.
