British Court Frees Founder of WikiLeaks on Bail

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.

Mr. Assange's case has generated enormous international
interest, with critics vilifying him over the tens of
thousands of confidential military and diplomatic documents
his organization has made public, while supporters depict him
as a hero and martyr. The Obama administration is considering
whether to try prosecuting him in the United States over the
leaked documents. But the criminal investigation in Sweden is
rooted in allegations of personal behavior that have nothing
directly to do with WikiLeaks's activities.
