Par the BBC:
The founder of the whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, has been arrested by the Metropolitan Police.
The 39-year-old Australian denies allegations he sexually assaulted two women in Sweden.
Mr Assange is due to appear at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court later.
A Wikileaks spokesman said Mr Assange's arrest was an attack on media freedom but it would not stop the release of more secret files.
Good timeline by the Guardian here. This also includes the news that the notorious mass-dump of information which would occur were Assange to be arrested is not in the cards, but that the drip-feed of released cables will continue as usual.
More updates can be posted in the comments as things develop.
