WikiLeaks founder awaits bail appeal

The founder of whistle-blowing website Wikileaks, Julian Assange, will know by Thursday if he will be freed on bail.

Mr Assange remains in Wandsworth Prison after Swedish authorities appealed against a decision to grant him bail.

His lawyer Mark Stephens said about half the £240,000 bail money had been raised and the High Court appeal would be heard on Thursday at the latest.
