WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrives at the Westminster Magistrates Court, after he was arrested in London, Britain, April 11, 2019. Reuters Photographer Hannah McKay: "We had been waiting for Julian Assange to leave the Ecuadorian embassy for seven years. Every now and then there would be a rumour that he was leaving and we would scramble to Knightsbridge (the neighborhood where the embassy is located), but nothing. When the news broke that Assange had been taken into custody I was in Downing Street. I rushed to Westminster MagistratesÕ Court in case he was taken there. A Reuters colleague got an exclusive image of him leaving the police station, and let me know that Assange would be in the second van in the convoy. When the police vans arrived it was pandemonium. The photographers and TV crews surged forward as police tried to hold us back. One officer lunged towards me. I darted to the left and shot a few frames. To be honest, I was quite surprised that I got the shot. Shooting through tinted glass is a bit of a skill. You had to jam your lens as close to the window of the moving vehicle as possible and fire the flash to illuminate through the glass. I've been told that the picture is reminiscent of an oil painting. That's partly due to the colour of the tinted window, and partly because the image isnÕt entirely sharp!"
