Oops! Photo reveals UK police arrest plan for Assange


London (CNN) -- A policeman in London appears to have accidentally revealed an arrest plan for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, in what UK media have branded an embarrassing slip-up by London's Metropolitan Police.

The photo, snapped by the Press Association news agency and published in several newspapers, shows a clipboard held by a uniformed officer Friday outside the Ecuadorian embassy where Assange has been holed up since June.

Clearly legible in a zoomed-in view of the clipboard, on a sheet of paper headed "Restricted," are the words: "EQ Embassy brief - Summary of current position re. Assange. Action required - Assange to be arrested under all circumstances."

It goes on to suggest possible ways in which he could exit the building, such as in a diplomatic bag or vehicle.

1. I wonder what they are supposed to do if they see a large diplomatic pouch being
transported out of the embassy?

They did say days ago that he would be arrested if he made any attempt to leave the embassy, so I am not sure how much of a revelation this is. They had to have had a plan when they said that.
