WikiLeaks: Assange jailed; Visa, MasterCard join boycott

Julian Assange, the founder of the controversial WikiLeaks website, was arrested Tuesday and ordered to remain in custody until a hearing next week on his possible extradition to Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning over allegations that he sexually assaulted two women. The jailing came as governments and businesses around the world continued their efforts to halt the ability of WikiLeaks to function.
