WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was granted bail set at $315,000 on Tuesday, a week after his Dec. 7 arrest on suspicion of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion in Sweden.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion in Sweden.

In City of Westminster Magistrate's Court Tuesday he was denied bail. Assange said he would resist extradition to Sweden, where he faces questioning in connection with the alleged offenses. He has been ordered to remain in custody until a further court session on Dec. 14.
