A number of human rights campaigners and celebrities put up a cash sum of 200,000 pounds ($315,000) to secure bail for the 39-year-old Australian. Assange was arrested in London a week ago after British police received a European Arrest Warrant (EWA) in which Sweden demanded his extradition on allegations of sex offences against two women.

Supporters were jubilant at the decision to free Assange outside City of Westminster Magistrates
