Sweden says it is dropping Assange rape investigation



STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – A Swedish prosecutor said on Tuesday she would not proceed with an investigation into an allegation of rape against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after a review of the evidence.

“I’m holding this press conference to inform you I’m discontinuing the preliminary investigation”,” Deputy Chief Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson said.

The 48 year-old Australian citizen has repeatedly denied the allegation against him, made in 2010.
