WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange has cryptically uploaded a picture of himself dressed in the national colors of Ecuador. The country’s media reports the whistleblower has been granted an Ecuadorian ID.
Earlier today, Julian Assange wrote via Twitter that the head of Wikileaks’ legal team, Baltasar Garzón, was targeted in a break in. The Wikileaks founder stated that no money was taken, security cameras were taped over and that local police believed it was a “very professional” operation.
