LONDON // Julian Assange's new talk show has premiered on the Kremlin's English-language satellite broadcaster, its opening episode featuring an interview with Hassan Nasrallah, the Hizbollah leader.

The World Tomorrow opened today on the RT network, a broadcaster criticised by some as a Russian propaganda mouthpiece.

The WikiLeaks founder has promised that his guests have told him things they "could not say on a mainstream TV network".

Mr Assange remains under strict bail conditions at an undisclosed location in the United Kingdom while he fights extradition to Sweden on sex crime allegations.

The interview with the Shiite militant boss was carried out via videolink and with the help of translators.
