Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will no longer have 24/7 police surveillance at Ecuador's Embassy near London.
Since June 2012, Metropolitan police have patrolled the Ecuadorian Embassy where Assange has asylum.
But a recent report found the around-the-clock security has cost the government about 10 million pounds, or roughly $15 million.
And that's a big reason why the security was pulled. In a statement Monday, the Metropolitan Police Commissioner said the 24/7 watch was no longer "proportionate."
Assange is facing extradition to Sweden on a possible rape allegation. Scotland Yard said if Assange leaves the embassy, it will "make every effort to arrest him." (Video via Sky News)
