Britain has threatened to raid the Ecuadorian embassy in London if
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is not handed over, Ecuador's foreign
minister says.

At a media conference in Quito, Ricardo Patino said the position taken by
the British government was "unacceptable".

"Today we've received a threat by the United Kingdom, a clear and written
threat that they could storm our embassy in London if Ecuador refuses to
hand in Julian Assange," he said.

"We are not a British colony."
