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.
