German court agrees to release ex-Catalan leader Puigdemont on bail
   Carles Puigdemont
 A German court Thursday agreed to release on bail former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont and said his extradition to Spain was possible on the basis of corruption charges there, but not on the more serious charge of rebellion.

Puigdemont was arrested on entering Germany last month on a Spanish-issued arrest warrant. Spain accused the Catalan separatist of rebellion and corruption after he organized an unsanctioned independence referendum.

The court set bail at $91,717.50.
