    A "state actor" has cut off internet access for Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, the transparency activist organization said Monday.

    Assange's internet link has been "intentionally severed by a state party," WikiLeaks said in a Monday morning tweet.

    "We have activated the appropriate contingency plans," the organization added.

    WikiLeak later blamed the outage on Ecuador. Assange has resided in the Ecuadorean embassy in London since 2012 in an effort to avoid extradition on sexual assault allegations.

    "We can confirm Ecuador cut off Assange's internet access" Saturday evening, shortly after WikiLeaks published what appear to be speeches by U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to Goldman Sachs, WikiLeaks tweeted late Monday.
