Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Oz Foreign Minister dismisses Assange 'extradition to US' conspiracy theories Sydney - Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr has said claims that the Swedish prosecution against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is part of a conspiracy to have him extradited to the United States is sheer fantasy.

Carr said that Assange would be safer in Sweden than the UK, as the Swedes say that they will 'never extradite someone on a matter to related to military or intelligence'

He said that 'to suggest that the Swedes are after him as a CIA conspiracy to get him to Stockholm and allowing him to be bundled off to Langley, Virginia is sheer fantasy,' reports.

For the past eight months the WikiLeaks publisher has been confined to Ecuador's London embassy.

He has been granted political asylum by Ecuador on the grounds that he is at risk of extradition to the US to face conspiracy or other charges arising from WikiLeaks obtaining thousands of secret US military and diplomatic reports leaked by US Army soldier Bradley Manning.
