Decision next week on Julian Assange extradition

LONDON (AP) - WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange is to find out next
week whether his bid to block extradition to Sweden has been
successful.
Britain's Supreme Court said Wednesday the decision on his case
will be announced next Wednesday morning.
His lawyers have asked the Supreme Court to rule that the
European arrest warrant issued against him was invalid.
He is sought by Swedish prosecutors for questioning on sex
crimes allegations relating to accusations made against by two
Swedish women after he visited that country in 2010.
Swedish prosecutors say the arrest warrant is valid and must be
enforced.
Assange has denied the allegations against him and says he would
not receive a fair trial.
Financial and legal problems have in the last six months slowed
the work of his secrets-spilling website.
