WikiLeaks boss walks out on CNN interview after reporter asks about private life

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and his organisation are famously liberal with the secrets of the U.S. military – but the man is not so forthcoming about his own private life.

Australian-born Mr Assange walked out on a CNN interview after the reporter had the temerity to ask him about his often terse relationship with fellow workers – and an even more serious personal court case in which he was cleared of sex abuse charges in Sweden.

The 39-year-old ended the interview with CNN’s Atika Shubert after she brought up the issue of the charges brought against him – who himself publicised the charges as a ‘dirty tricks campaign’ by the U.S. government.
