Wikileaks founder slams sexual abuse charges
Julian Assange, the founder of the whistle-blower website Wikileaks, has categorically denied Swedish sexual abuse charges launched against him.
The country's prosecution authority has dropped an arrest warrant for a rape charge, but a separate molestation accusation is still under investigation.
WikiLeaks has been criticised for leaking Afghan war documents.And despite warnings from the Pentagon, the website is preparing to release a fresh batch of classified documents.
In an exlusive interview with Al Jazeera, Assange said that the accusations are part of a "smear campaign" against him.
