George Zimmerman freed on Florida bail

George Zimmerman has been released from prison on bail as he awaits trial for the killing of Trayvon Martin.

The neighbourhood watch volunteer left the Seminole County jail late Sunday night on a $150,000 (£93,000) bond.

He is set to go on trial on second degree murder charges for the fatal shooting of unarmed black teenager on 26 February.

He claims he was acting in self-defence, but the case sparked an outcry in the US.

Mr Zimmerman was driven away from the prison and is expected to stay at a secret location.
