Ecuador on Wednesday said it has stopped Julian Assange's ability to communicate to the outside world from its London Embassy, where the WikiLeaks founder has been holed up since 2012 .The comments prompted a British Foreign Office minister, Alan Duncan, to brand Assange a "miserable little worm" who should leave the embassy to turn himself over to British authorities.In another tweetstorm on Tuesday, Assange attacked the arrest in Germany of former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont under an EU warrant issued by Spain over Puigdemont's failed bid last year to declare independence for his Spanish region.Ecuador in December made Assange an Ecuadoran citizen and unsuccessfully tried to register him as a diplomat with immunity as part of its efforts to have the WikiLeaks founder leave the embassy without risk of being detained.
