WikiLeaks says that the Internet access of its founder, Julian Assange, has been cut by an unidentified state actor. Few other details were immediately available, and officials at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he's been holed up for more than four years, weren't commenting. The organization said the interruption in Internet service was related to its ongoing publication of hacked emails from the Hillary Clinton campaign.
