Assange remains in custody after Swedish appeal

The founder of the Wikileaks website, Julian Assange, who is facing extradition to Sweden for alleged sexual offences, has been granted bail by a court in London.

But he has not been freed because the Swedish authorities have lodged an appeal, which must be heard at the High Court within 48 hours.

Outside the City of Westminster Magistrates' Court, Mr Assange's lawyer, Mark Stephens, said the case was becoming a "show trial".
