STOCKHOLM — A Swedish prosecutor has asked for a court order to detain WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for questioning on suspicions of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion.

Director of Public Persecution Marianne Ny said Thursday the reason for the request is that investigators have not been able to bring Assange in for an interrogation.

Assange has denied the allegations, which stem from his encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August.
