Julian Assange is now being questioned over a sexual assault allegation

Assistant prosecutor Ingrid Isgren and Swedish police inspector Cecilia Redell were again present at Tuesday's interview.

The hearing is expected to last several days, according to Per Samuelsson, Swedish attorney to Australian journalist Julian Assange.

A small group of Assange supporters gathered outside the embassy Monday.

Assange, who has been holed up in the embassy in London since 2012, is being interviewed by Swedish prosecutors over allegations he assaulted two women in 2010.

Two women in Sweden claim Assange molested them in 2010.

Assange, who enraged Washington by publishing a flood of secret U.S. diplomatic cables, fled to the embassy for fear that, if extradited to Sweden, he could be sent on to the United States and face a long prison term there for leaking USA secrets. Mr. Assange denies the Swedish rape allegation and hasn't been charged for it.

"What we have asked from Sweden, and the United Kingdom, are guarantees that Mr Assange will not be extradited to a third country, where he could be persecuted for his work as as a journalist".

Robinson would not be drawn on whether Assange would provide a DNA sample wanted by Swedish prosecutors.

One Swedish woman accused Assange of intentionally breaking a condom, and holding her down during sex, while a second accused Assange of having sex with her while she was asleep and not using a condom.

Julian Assange's cat makes an appearance Monday.

A statement on behalf of the Swedish prosecutors, quoted by the Press Association, said the investigation would remain confidential.

Assange had continued to operate WikiLeaks from the embassy.

The results of the questioning by an Ecuadoran prosecutor, which began on Monday, will not be provided immediately as the matter still "subject to confidentiality", the Swedish prosecutor's office said in a statement.

It was unclear what Mr. Assange's next step would be in the event that he is charged or the allegation is dropped.

He has resisted traveling to Sweden because he says authorities may extradite him to the United States, where he faces questions about the leak of more than 500,000 secret files about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

By then Assange was in Britain, making it harder for Swedish prosecutors to question him.

The president-elect said during his campaign, "I love WikiLeaks", reveling in the organization's release of Hillary Clinton's hacked emails.
