Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou released on bail in Canada

The chief financial officer of Chinese telecoms giant Huawei has been granted bail by a Canadian court.

Meng Wanzhou could be extradited to the US to face fraud charges linked to the alleged violation of sanctions on Iran.

A judge in Vancouver set her bail at C$10m (£6m; $7.4m) including C$7m in cash.

Meng was arrested in Vancouver on 1 December. Her detention has angered China and threatened to worsen its trade war with the US.
