WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said Monday he would 'soon' leave Ecuador's embassy in London but his organisation played down the comment, saying he would not depart until there was an agreement with Britain's government. Assange took refuge in June 2012 in the Ecadorian Embassy to avoid extradition to Sweden, where he faces allegations of rape and sexual molestation, which he strongly denies.
