A rumour about Julian Assange’s death is currently gaining traction among his supporters. Daily Mail reported the 45-year-old Assange might have died over the weekend after a visit by celebrity Pamela Anderson.
Anderson was sighted walking into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where Assange is holed up since four years ago and clutching a bag believed to contain some sandwiches. She later tweeted her concern for Assange and his family, calling him a good man and hoping he would be freed.
Meanwhile, Wikileak has said Assange’s internet link has been hacked by a state party, fuelling speculation that the United States was responsible.
“Julian Assange’s internet link has been intentionally severed by a state party”, the statement said.
Assange is wanted in his home country Sweden for rape, but he fears he may be extradited to the US to answer questions on Wikileak’s activities.
