WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange fears he may be assassinated if he steps outside the Ecuadorian embassy.
In an interview Mr Assange said he has not had any fresh air or sunlight for three years because it is too dangerous for him to leave the building.
He said "There are security issues with being on the balcony. There have been bomb threats and assassination threats from various people."
Despite believing it is "not likely" that he will be shot, he worries that if he is ever free he could be kidnapped or "droned" by the CIA.

Taxpayer-funded legal support available to individuals criticised by the Iraq war inquiry should be limited to help speed up the publication of the final report, a Conservative MP has said.
David Davis, a leading critic of the delay in publishing the conclusions of Sir John Chilcot's probe six years after it was commissioned, said the cost to the public was ridiculous.
Mr Davis told the Daily Telegraph: "There are two groups of people who are suffering most from these inordinate delays of Chilcot: one group are the families of the dead who are being denied closure and the other group are the ordinary taxpayers who are being denied an answer as to the causes of the war.
It seems ridiculous that the second group - the taxpayers - are also having to pay the cost of this answer being delayed ad infinitum.
Surely the reasonable action for the Government to take now is to say 'there should be a limit in time and money on what can be spent on government lawyers to allow this inordinate delay to continue'.
Downing Street said: "This is an independent inquiry and as such Maxwellisation, publication and timing are a matter for Sir John."
