"I am a journalist who has been persecuted and threatened with death by the US authorities because of my professional activities," Assange wrote. "My life is in danger right now, Mr President and my physical as well as psychological integrity is at more risk with every passing day."
Frankrike avslog dock hans ansökan och på president Hollandes hemsida skrevs:
"Mr Assange's situation does not present any immediate danger. He is also the subject of a European arrest warrant,"
