LONDON: The United Kingdom has signed an extradition order to send Julian Assange to the United States.

British Home Secretary Sajid Javid told the BBC that Assange was “rightly behind bars”.

“There’s an extradition request from the US that is before the courts … yesterday I signed the extradition order and certified it,” he told the BBC.

The final decision on Assange’s extradition would be up to the court, he said.
