Kizza Besigye, Museveni's election rival released

BBC confirms Uganda's High Court has released on bail opposition leader Kizza Besigye, who is running in elections next month:

The BBC's Will Ross says the court ruling was a victory for Dr Besigye's lawyers, but there are many battles ahead. It is possible that despite the judge's ruling, the military will move to re-arrest him because the military court has stated that it is not subordinate to the High Court.
