WikiLeaks’ elusive founder, his options dwindling, has turned to Switzerland’s credit, postal and Internet infrastructure to keep his online trove of US State Department cables afloat.

Supporters say Julian Assange is considering seeking asylum in Switzerland. He told a newspaper that he faced “hundreds of death threats,” some targeting his lawyers and children, aside from the pressure he is getting from prosecutors in the US and other countries.
