WikiLeaks founder Assange asks Sweden to investigate missing luggage
STOCKHOLM (AP) - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange asked the Swedish police on Tuesday to investigate what happened to a suitcase he suspects was stolen from him as he traveled from Sweden to Germany in 2010.
Assange's lawyer Per Samuelson told the Associated Press that he had filed a criminal complaint with an affidavit by Assange to the police at Stockholm's Arlanda Airport.
The move comes a day before United States President Barack Obama's visit to Sweden.
WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said similar complaints would be filed in other countries, including Germany and Denmark, alleging potentially unlawful US intelligence operations against Assange.
