LONDON - WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will begin his appeal on Tuesday against his extradition from Britain to Sweden for questioning over allegations of sexual misconduct.

The 40-year-old Australian computer expert will take his legal battle to the High Court in London for a two-day hearing after losing an initial challenge to the extradition order in February.

Swedish prosecutors want to question Assange about allegations of sexual assault made by two women, both WikiLeaks volunteers, in Sweden last August. He denies the allegations.

He was arrested in December around the same time as his whistle-blowing website began publishing a cache of more than 250,000 secret US diplomatic cables which hurt the US government and caused a media sensation.
