Good morning, Netizens...

LONDON – Police say Julian Assange, WikiLeaks founder has surrendered to British police as part of a Swedish sex-crimes investigation, the latest blow to the secret-spilling website that faces legal, financial and security challenges.

Assange was arrested at 9:30 a.m. (930 GMT) Tuesday and was due to appear at Westminster Magistrate's Court later today. Assange has been hiding out at an undisclosed location in Great Britain since WikiLeaks began publishing hundreds of U.S. diplomatic cables on the Internet last week.
