The Swedish prosecutor has cancelled an appointment to interview Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorean embassy in London, according to the WikiLeaks founder.

Speaking on the third anniversary of his entering the embassy to avoid extradition over allegations of sexual assault in Sweden, Mr Assange said that the move by Marianne Ny was “reckless”.

Meanwhile WikiLeaks published more than 60,000 diplomatic cables from Saudi Arabia, saying on its website that it would release half a million more in the coming weeks.

The organisation said it had obtained email communications between Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry and other countries.
