WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is a free man today. The following comes from the New York Times:
Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks anti-secrecy group, was granted bail by a British court on Tuesday after a week in detention. Mr. Assange, who faces possible extradition to Sweden for questioning about alleged sex offenses, was freed on $310,000 bail until the next hearing in his case, set for Jan. 11.
ABC News reports Assange will not be allowed to leave Britain, and the Swedish government has not dropped its intent to try him for sexual assault.
