FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18 2016 WORLD 17 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA week, describing the billionaire as a dealmaker who would view the world in a very practical and pragmatic way. His office confirmed to News Corp that Norman, known as the Great White Shark, gave Australias ambassador to the US a phone number closely linked to Trump. Assange seeks clarity QUITO: WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange should receive guarantees that he wont be extradited if he faces justice in Sweden after four years of living in Ecuadors embassy in London, the South American nation says. Assange, who enraged Washington by publishing a flood of secret US diplomatic cables, fled to the embassy for fear that Sweden could end up sending him on to the United States, where he could face prison for leaking US secrets. If we can obtain guarantees that Mr Assange will not face extradition to the third country, I think its fine for him to face Swedish justice if there are charges, because are there still no charges, said Foreign Minister Guillaume Long in an interview with an Ecuadorean radio station. Swedish Chief Prosecutor Ingrid Isgren spent several hours at the embassy this week where she posed questions through an Ecuadorian prosecutor, before leaving without making comment. Assange, who has repeatedly denied the rape allegation, sought refuge in Ecuadors embassy in August 2012. He is wanted in Britain for breaching bail. Assanges legal team has also raised the prospect of appealing to US President-elect Donald Trump to end a criminal investigation into the WikiLeaks founder. Assange was interviewed inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London this week in the presence of prosecutors from Sweden. The Australians lawyer, Jennifer Robinson, said the WikiLeaks founder had co-operated fully with the interview and hopes the Swedish prosecutor will give impartial and objective consideration so the matter can be closed. The spokesman would not confirm it was the Republicans mobile number, which said Turnbull was the second world leader to reach Trump after his shock win. Turnbull refused to say how Norman facilitated the call, but said the golfer was a great advocate for strengthening the Australian-American alliance. Belgium train cyber patrol BRUSSELS: Belgium is training young people as cyber-patrollers in a government-backed campaign aimed at combating hate speech as Europe sees a surge in online abuse. The NO Hate campaign chose 31 people aged between 18 and 35 to be trained as internet activists, speaking out against online bullying and harassment as part of an anti-discrimination and anti-radicalisation programme. Young people are exposed more and more to hate speech on the internet, says Isabelle Simonis, Belgiums minister of social advancement.

The balloon set down on the field in the Kensington section of the city yesterday afternoon. It had originated in Glenmoore, about 65km outside of Philadelphia.
