Wikileaks founder Julian Assange made his name by revealing government secrets. Well today, Assange is at the centre of another secret. Only this time, he didn't reveal it.
A British police officer did it for him - by mistake. The officer was photographed holding a clipboard with a handwritten briefing, outlining ways Assange could try to escape Ecuador's embassy in Britain.
Assange has been hiding out there for the past two months, trying to avoid being arrested and extradited to Sweden. He's wanted there for questioning over alleged rape and sexual assault.
The police officer's notes were captured by a Press Association photographer. They say Assange should be arrested "under any circumstances" even if he comes out in a vehicle, under diplomatic immunity or in a diplomatic bag, which may involve "risk to life."
The notes were marked "restricted" and warned about the "possibility of distraction", suggesting that police are concerned Assange's supporters could try to distract authorities, as Assange would try to escape.
