Swedish prosecutors have dropped a rape investigation against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The probe began when a Swedish woman accused him in 2010 of having unprotected sex with her while she was sleeping, after she repeatedly refused to have unprotected sex with him.
Deputy Chief Prosecutor Eva-Marie Persson told reporters the case was dropped although prosecutors found the woman's claim "credible."
"My assessment is that all investigative measures that can be taken have been taken," Persson said. "But... the evidence is not strong enough to file an indictment."
Assange, an Australian citizen, has repeatedly denied the allegation.
