News Summary: Doc lays out Assange police tactics

POLICE TACTICS: A confidential document lays out Scotland Yard's simple strategy for dealing with Julian Assange should he ever try to leave Ecuador's Embassy in London.

HOW IT WAS OBTAINED: It was photographed by Britain's Press Association news agency as an official carried it in his hand.

SIGNIFICANCE: It lays out the major difficulty the WikiLeaks founder faces, even though he's received diplomatic asylum. He's safe as long as he remains in the embassy. The minute he steps outside, he faces immediate arrest — and speedy extradition to Sweden — over sex crimes allegations leveled against him there.
