This week, Anna Ardin, one of the women who has accused Wikileaks founder Julian Assange of rape, moved to the village of Yanoun in the West Bank.

Ardin wrote in her blog: "The tiny village of Yanoun has 1990 inhabitants, and one speaks English. And I'm very happy about it. 'Adrusu l'Arabiyya,' I am studying Arabic."Ardin is traveling with the the World Council of Churches' Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel, a Christian outreach group, which is meant to "suppress violence and promote respect for international law through practical solidarity."

Assange was arrested in the UK this week, after the Swedish authorities sought his extradition on sexual assault charges.
