The warrant was issued by prosecutors in Sweden, where the Australian-born internet activist was on a visit last week.
"Julian Assange is wanted for two different issues, one of them is that he's suspected of rape in Sweden," said Karin Rosander, director of communications at the prosecutor's office.

He was unable to say what the other accusation was, or whether the warrant was international. During his visit to Sweden, Assange held a press conference where he announced that his whistleblower website was intending to publish further secret military documents on the war in Afghanistan.snip
