London police dragged Assange out of the embassy on Thursday after his seven-year asylum was revoked, paving the way for his extradition to the United States for one of the biggest ever leaks of classified information. Assange's relationship with his hosts collapsed after Ecuador accused him of leaking information about Moreno's personal life. He said he regretted that Assange had used the embassy to interfere in other country’s democracies. "We cannot allow our house, the house that opened its doors, to become a centre for spying,” the Guardian quoted Moreno as saying. Supporters of Assange said Ecuador had betrayed him at the behest of Washington, that the ending of his asylum was illegal and that it marked a dark moment for press freedom.
