The British high court has granted bail to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange is wanted in Sweden over rape allegations and he may be charged for leaking confidential U.S. government documents. Justice Duncan Ouseley had agreed with a decision made by the City of Westminister. He can only be bailed for £200,000 cash deposit and £40,000 across two sureties. There are also strict conditions on where he can move. [Guardian UK]
