Swedish officials say that WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has filed another appeal against a court order to detain him in a rape investigation.

Supreme Court spokeswoman Tove Levelind said the appeal was received by the court on Tuesday.

Earlier this month, an appeals court rejected Mr. Assange’s first appeal, upholding a district court decision to detain him for questioning.

Mr. Assange, whose whereabouts are unknown, is wanted concerning allegations against him that include rape and sexual molestation. They stem from his encounters with two Swedish women during a visit to the Nordic country in August. He has denied the allegations.

WikiLeaks made another disclosure of classified documents over the weekend, including diplomatic cables and sensitive U.S. State Department documents.
