Julian Assange has spoken to reporters in the UK after his first daily outing, in which he had to report to police who are checking on his bail conditions.

Mr Assange is on strict bail in the UK as he battles extradition to Sweden on sex offence charges.

He told reporters that there had been many calls by senior political figures in the US for his execution and the kidnapping of WikiLeaks staff.

He said certain political figures in the US had also called for the execution of Bradley Manning, a young soldier who, it has been alleged, was involved in leaking information to WikiLeaks.

Assange has denied any knowledge of Manning, the former US Army intelligence analyst who is now being held in isolation in the US.

The WikiLeaks founder has also denounced the Bank of America after it halted all donations to the WikiLeaks website.

Assange said the Bank of America had said in a statement it would no longer send any transactions by any of its clients to any organisations collecting money on behalf of WikiLeaks.

He said the decision had been made by the bank to deprive WikiLeaks of funds needed to survive and to deprive him personally of money needed to protect him against extradition to the US or to Sweden.
