House arrest hampering WikiLeaks work: Assange

Last Updated: Thursday, June 16, 2011 - 23:59

London: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says
his house arrest over sex allegations is hampering the work of
the secret-spilling site, and his supporters accuse Britain of
spying on him.

The 39-year-old Australian has spent six months at a
supporter`s rural estate as he fights extradition to Sweden,
where he is accused of the rape and sexual assault of two
women.

Supporters have released a video claiming police had set
up surveillance cameras near the house to record license
plates of visiting cars.

Assange`s bail conditions require him to wear an
electronic tag and report to police daily.

Assange told the Associated Press today that he had
become "a fixed target" for snoopers.

He said his house arrest had been "the single largest
impediment to our work."
