Rebekah Brooks Appears In Court

Ex-News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks has appeared in court on charges of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.

Mrs Brooks, 44, and husband Charlie, 49, who appeared at Southwark Crown Court, were bailed until 26 September.

She faces three charges of conspiring to pervert the course of justice, while Mr Brooks is charged with one count of the same offence.

Assange ‘Abandoned By Australia

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange says he has sought refuge in Ecuador's London embassy because his native Australia has abandoned him.

Mr Assange is seeking diplomatic asylum to prevent him being sent to Sweden to answer accusations of rape and assault, which he denies.

In his first interview since entering the embassy, Mr Assange admitted there was no guarantee his bid would succeed.

Ecuador's president said the country was examining the case for asylum.

Mr Assange fears if he is sent to Sweden it could lead to him being sent to the United States to face charges over Wikileaks and that he could face the death penalty.

His Wikileaks website published a mass of leaked diplomatic cables that embarrassed several governments and international businesses.

In his interview with the Australian Broadcasting Corp radio, Mr Assange, 40, said he did not know when the decision would be made.

William Hill To Launch In US

William Hill has been given the green light to launch its first US operations after being granted a licence by the Nevada Gaming Commission.

Last year, the British bookmaker announced it was to buy three US companies, but the acquisitions were dependent on the awarding of a licence.

The deals are now expected to complete by the end of the month.
