A huge day for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, as a British judge rules against extraditing him to the US citing mental health-concerns, but as Wikileaks' current editor-in-chief points out that questions over press freedom still remain. The US has already announced it will appeal the court decision. We speak to some of Assange's supporters outside the London courthouse. The decision is a milestone in the almost 10-year Assange legal saga - from sexual assault allegations in Sweden, to the espionage case in the US. In 2019, Assange was arrested after being holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy for seven years - and until now has been waiting for a decision over his extradition to the US.
