WikiLeaks tweeted Monday that Julian Assange’s internet connection has been cut by Ecuador, the country hosting him in its London embassy.
Earlier in the day, WikiLeaks sent out a cryptic tweet that Assange’s internet access had been severed by a state party and it had “activated appropriate contingency plans” but gave no further information as to what this might mean. It later tweeted that it had “confirmed” that state party was Ecuador.
The latest tweet says Assange’s access was cut Saturday, “shortly after publication of Clinton’s Goldman Sachs speechs (sic). ”
It is not clear whether the lack of internet reported by WikiLeaks targeted only Assange, or whether the entire embassy has been affected.

Update, 1:57 p.m.: Adds WikiLeaks latest tweet claiming that Ecuador cut off Assange’s internet access.
