A British court Thursday granted bail to Rwandan intelligence chief Karenzi Karake after President Paul Kagame slammed his arrest as "absolute arrogance".Karake, who was arrested last week at London Heathrow Airport on a Spanish-issued warrant, appeared at Westminster Magistrates Court in the British capital wearing a yellow and green jumpsuit. District judge Quentin Purdy said that a full extradition hearing would take place on October 29 and 30 .After the hearing, Karake was driven away in the same police van that he arrived in.Once the bail is paid, Karake must live either at the high commissioner's family home or in a house rented by the Rwandan embassy.The Spanish indictment accuses Karake of mass ethnic killings of Hutus in the wake of the 1994 genocide.Hundreds of protesters marched on the British embassy in the Rwandan capital Kigali Wednesday demanding Karake's release.
