LONDON, Oct 21: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange appeared in a London court on Monday for a hearing on whether he should be extradited to the United States to face spying charges.

Assange, dressed in a navy suit and light blue jumper, raised his fist to supporters in the public gallery. He was cleanly shaven in contrast to the long beard he had grown while holed up in Ecuador's embassy.
Assange, 48, faces 18 counts in the US, including conspiring to hack government computers and violating an espionage law. He could spend decades in prison if convicted.     -REUTERS
