Swedish prosecutors have dropped their investigation into WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange over a 2010 rape allegation, despite finding the plaintiff's claim 'credible'. A probe was launched after a Swedish woman who met Assange at a WikiLeaks conference in Stockholm in Aug 2010 accused him of having unprotected sex with her while she was sleeping as she had earlier refused him. Assange is also fighting a US extradition case.
