PARIS -- Interpol has placed the Australian-born founder of 
WikiLeaks on its most-wanted list after Sweden issued an arrest 
warrant against him as part of a drawn-out rape investigation.

The Lyon, France-based international police organization has 
issued a "red notice" for 39-year old Julian Assange - the 
equivalent of putting him on its most wanted list.

The issuance by Interpol was expected after a Swedish court in 
mid-November approved a motion to have Assange brought in for 
questioning. The notice, posted on Interpol's site Tuesday, is 
likely to make international travel more difficult for him.

Assange, whose whereabouts are unknown, is suspected of rape, 
sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. He has denied the 
allegations, which stem from his encounters with two women during 
a visit to Sweden in August.
