Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been charged by the United States’ Justice Department with violating the US Espionage Act in the publishing of military and diplomatic files in 2010.

In a new 17-charge, the US is accusing Assange of aiding and abetting Chelsea Manning with stealing secret US files and also recklessly exposing and endangering confidential sources in the Middle East and China who were named in the files.
