Julian Assenge ArrestedAlthough Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was arrested on Tuesday in London due to a sex case, the site seems to continue operating, and Assange even said he would release the group's entire trove of secret cables if the U.S. takes legal action against his operation.

Reuters writes:

WikiLeaks said on Tuesday it will keep operating as normal after the arrest of its founder, Julian Assange, in Britain.

"WikiLeaks is operational. We are continuing on the same track as laid out before," said Kristinn Hrafnsson, spokesman for the group. "Any development with regards to Julian Assange will not change the plans we have with regards to the releases today and in the coming days."

Hrafnsson said the operation would be run by a group of people from London and other locations.

Meanwhile Los Angeles Times reports the sex case:
