LONDON — Lawyers fighting over the extradition of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have returned to court Friday to make their final arguments in a high-profile case which has threatened to overshadow the organization's secret-spilling work.

Assange, famous for publishing a massive cache of confidential US military and diplomatic documents, is wanted for questioning in Sweden on sex crimes allegations stemming from a visit he paid to the Scandinavian country last summer.

The 39-year-old Australian is fighting the extradition and denies the allegations.
