The founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange has claimed he is being bombarded with death threats from American soldiers.
He also said that a statement on the steps of the High Court last week after he was released on bail was cut short because police feared he would be assassinated.
Australian-born Mr Assange, 39, said his son Daniel, 20, and his lawyer have received similar chilling warnings.
Speaking to a Spanish newspaper after being released on £275,000 bail, he said: “I receive death threats all the time. My lawyer receives them, my son receives them.
“Most of them seem to come from members of the United States armed forces.”
