A senior Swedish prosecutor has decided to re-opened the rape case against Wikileaks editor Julian Assange, saying that more investigations were needed before a final decision could be made.

A separate investigation into allegations of molestation, which is not a sexual crime in Sweden, continues, but prosecutors want to reclassify the charges as sexual molestation and sexual coercion.
