Wikileaks: Document dumps that shook the world

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested on Thursday at Ecuador’s London embassy, where he had been granted asylum since 2012.

The United States alleges that he conspired with Chelsea Manning to access classified information on Department of Defense computers. He could be jailed for up to five years.

Since it launched in 2006, Wikileaks has become renowned for publishing thousands of classified documents covering everything from the film industry to national security and wars.
