WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he will be leaving the Ecuadorian embassy in London soon, after two years of refuge.

In a press briefing, Assange cited Human Rights Watch calling on the US to stop its investigation of him. Assange also said his rights should be protected, and his rights have been infringed on by the British government and media.

The 43-year-old has been investigated by US authorities since WikiLeaks published leaked military and diplomatic documents back in 2010. He was granted asylum in 2012 and is facing an arrest warrant in Sweden over allegations of the sexual assault of two women. He denied the allegations at the press briefing.
