PanARMENIAN.Net – Sweden’s director of public prosecutions has decided to drop the rape investigation into Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, BBC News reports.

Assange, 45, has lived in the Ecuadoran embassy in London since 2012, trying to avoid extradition. He feared being extradited to the US if sent to Sweden.
