WikiLeaks founder Assange gets bail

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has succeeded in securing a bail at a British court where he appeared in connection with a case of sexual misconduct. The embattled whistleblower who was accused of sexual misconduct by two women in Sweden is resisting an extradition claim by the country.
Granting him bail on an amount of 240,000 pounds (Over Rs 1.5 crore), the court ordered Assange to adhere to strict bail conditions. The 39-year-old Australian, who has earned the wrath of the US for leaking a huge cache of secret diplomatic documents, has been imprisoned for a week now after he gave himself up to Scotland Yard in London.
