REFILE-Assange lawyer says journalists should be troubled by U.S. charges against him

(Corrects typographical error in paragraph 2)

WASHINGTON, April 11 (Reuters) - A lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said journalists around the world should be troubled by the U.S. charges that accused Assange of conspiracy with former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to hack a government computer.

“The factual allegations against Mr. Assange boil down to encouraging a source to provide him information and taking efforts to protect the identity of that source,” lawyer Barry Pollack said. “Journalists around the world should be deeply troubled by these unprecedented criminal charges.” (Reporting by Mark Hosenball Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
