    A video press conference with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange came under an attack on the Internet, the whistleblowing website announced on social media networks.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — As the video stream links are targeted, Assange's video press conference will be rescheduled, WikiLeaks added.

    ​Assange has been giving regular press conferences online from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where he has been trapped since 2012. He fears he can be extradited to Sweden and from there to the United States where he is wanted for leaking thousands of top-secret military cables.
