WikiLeaks Founder Assange Granted Bail

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been granted bail by a British court.  The bail was set at $315,000 (200,000 British Pounds).

The BBC Tuesday reported that Assange, as part of his bail conditions, is to wear an electronic bracelet and will be subject to a curfew.

Assange was being held since last week in a British jail on a warrant from Sweden, where he is wanted for questioning on allegations of rape.  He denies the allegations.

The controversial Assange had said earlier from his prison cell that he stands by his decision to publish thousands of classified U.S. government documents on his website.
