Information activist Julian Assange has been granted bail by the British police and will be free pending an appeal by Swedish prosecutors.
A crowd of supporters outside the courthouse greeted the news with cheers. If freed on the £240,00 bail, Assange will have to surrender his passport, maintain a curfew, wear an electronic tracking chip and report daily to police.
Assange’s next hearing is scheduled for July 11.

It covers the history of Assange as Australia’s most notorious young hacker, the founding of Wikileaks, and exclusive interviews and footage dating from summer 2010.
