Shortly after British police detained WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London yesterday, his fate became a topic of conversation around the world. 

While British opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn asked Prime Minister Theresa May to block his extradition, President Donald Trump — who praised Assange while on the 2016 campaign trail — said, “I know nothing about WikiLeaks.” And in Ecuador, authorities said they arrested a man with “close” ties to Assange.

How soon could he be extradited? Although he’s been charged with conspiring to hack into Pentagon computers, legal experts say it could be years before he reaches U.S. soil.
