WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has surfaced in Brussels after almost a month in hiding, during which U.S. officials were said to be looking for him to grill him on State Department cables on Iraq and Afghanistan. Assange, who appeared at a seminar on freedom of information, is still working on a video of a U.S. air strike that killed scores of Afghan civilians and children.

"I have been advised by my lawyers not to travel to the US during this period." - Assange
