LONDON (AP) - Julian Assange's mother has taken to Twitter to call on authorities to be gentle with her son, who's jailed in London after his removal from the Ecuadorian Embassy.
    
Christine Assange's tweets on Friday say Assange had been deprived of fresh air, exercise and medical care. "Please be patient, gentle & kind to him" she asked of police and court personnel.
    
The WikiLeaks founder is an Australia native, and the government said he would receive consular help due to its citizens after he was arrested on a U.S. conspiracy charge. But Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the expected battle over Assange's possible extradition would not involve Australia.
