Living in embassy like `being on space station’: Assange
London: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has described his experience of being holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London as ‘living in a space station’.
“It`s a little like living in a space station, because there`s no natural light and you`ve got to make all your own stuff. You can`t go out to shops and so on,” Assange told CNN.
The Australia-born activist, however, admitted that life in the embassy is a ‘lot better than the solitary confinement in prisons’.
“But I have been in solitary confinement. I know what life is like for prisoners. It`s a lot better than it is for prisoners,” Assange said.
According to the report, Assange appeared relaxed and healthy despite his restricted circumstances.
His comments came the same day WikiLeaks began disclosing a new round of US military documents dealing with handling prisoners in American military custody.
