London, United Kingdom:

UK Home Secretary Priti Patel has approved the US government’s request to extradite WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange, her department said on Friday.

The Interior Ministry said the interior minister “must sign an extradition order if there is no reason to prohibit the (extradition) order from being made” and the courts found none. Assange has 14 days to appeal.
