Ecuador is considering the possibility of granting Julian Assange asylum, says President Rafael Correa.

The President of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, has said that his country will have to examine whether Julian Assange’s life is in danger, when deciding whether to grant him asylum.

Kristinn Hrafnsson, friend of Mr Assange, journalist and spokesperson for the WikiLeaks organisation, told the BBC that as far as they were aware, his application was still being considered, and the 40-year-old was “in good spirits”.

It is understood he is preparing to spend a third night in the embassy while inquiries by Ecuadorian diplomats continue.
