"Assange death penalty fear denied" says the BBC headline; but in fact it is the likelihood of the death penalty that William Hague has denied; not Mr Assange's fear. It's an important difference.
Clearly it is one known and understood by the BBC writer. It's just that perhaps they lack the skill to express it.
Further more, it is not just the death penalty that Mr Assange fears but incarceration for some nonsense charge.
