Chinese artist Ai Weiwei visits Julian Assange in prison as U.S. sends Britain a formal request to extradite him for leaking military secrets

Weiwei, who was detained without charge in China for 81 days in 2011 during a crackdown on political activists, is believed to have previously visited Assange in 2015 when he was holed up inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London.

The 47-year-old’s father John Shipton arrived at the prison today with Ai Weiwei this afternoon.
