Several police officers have reportedly entered the building in London, which houses the Ecuadorian embassy and where WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is holed up, hoping to get asylum in the country.
Ecuador's Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said Wednesday that it would be "unacceptable" for British police to enter the embassy, but noted that his country "has made a decision" on Assange and will announce it Thursday at 7am (2pm CET).
Hours after the Ecuadorian government accused the U.K. government of threatening a raid to nab Wikileaks editor Julian Assange, police vans show up at the embassy and police enter the outer lobby.

So the next news we hear is he resisted arrest, pulled a gun and was subsequentially shot dead inside the embassy.

This is so wrong on so many levels, if we go in we are technically invading another country.
Britain told Ecuador on Thursday that giving Julian Assange asylum would not change a thing and that it might still revoke the diplomatic status of Quito's embassy in London to allow the extradition of the WikiLeaks founder.
"Giving asylum doesn't fundamentally change anything," the spokesman said, adding that Britain had a legal duty to extradite Assange to Sweden where he is wanted to stand trial for rape.
"We want to be very clear, we're not a British colony. The colonial times are over," Ecuadorean Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino said in an angry statement after a meeting with President Rafael Correa.
