WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was granted bail, with conditions, this morning by a London judge, but Swedish prosecutors may block his release.
If released, Assange must surrender his passport and agree to travel restrictions, adhere to a curfew and wear an electronic tracking device. He must remain at a Suffolk mansion and report into a local police station each evening. His bail was set at £240,000 ($320,000).
U.S. documentary filmmaker Michael Moore announced on his blog that he was contributing $20,000 to Assange’s bail. British heiress Jemima Khan and other celebrities have also offered to cover his bail.
