George Zimmerman has been released from a Florida county jail on $150 000 bail as he awaits his second-degree murder trial for the shooting of Trayvon Martin.

A report in The Guardian states that the neighbourhood watch volunteer was released shortly before midnight on Sunday. His destination was kept secret for his safety and it could be outside Florida. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester said at a hearing on Friday he must observe a 7pm to 6am curfew. Zimmerman also surrendered his passport. Prosecutors had asked for $1m bail, citing two previous scrapes Zimmerman had with the law, neither of which resulted in charges, according to the report. Full report in The Guardian
