Julian Assange, founder of the controversial website WikiLeaks, is out on bail in London following a week of legal drama over his extradition.

A British judge released the 39-year old Australian, Thursday. Assange is fighting extradition to Sweden, where he faces sex crime allegations related to a visit there over the summer.

"It's great to smell the fresh air of London again," he told cheering supporters amid a barrage of flash bulbs.

Assange is now headed to a British country mansion where he'll have to observe a curfew and wear a monitoring device.

WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson said Assange could use the 600-acre estate to continue coordinate the publication of leaked U.S. diplomatic cables.
