News video: Ecuador says it cut Julian Assange's internet accessJohn PodestaJohn Podesta
Ecuador’s government has confirmed it had temporarily cut internet access for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. The move followed a raft of leaked emails published by WikiLeaks, including the recent emails from the account of Hillary Clinton’s campaign adviser John Podesta. In a statement Ecuadorian officials said they had taken the action believing Assange was using the internet to interfere with the US presidential election.

Ecuador’s government denied it had acted as a result of US pressure and said it was merely respecting the principle of non-intervention. WikiLeaks, the whistleblowing site, responded saying the actions of Ecuador’s government would not prevent it from carrying out its journalistic activities.
