A Canadian facing possible extradition to France in connection with a 1980 synagogue bombing has been granted bail.

Mr. Justice Robert Maranger of Ontario Superior Court ruled yesterday that Hassan Diab be released while he awaits an extradition hearing.

But Judge Maranger imposed strict conditions, including that Mr. Diab - who denies the charges against him - wear an electronic bracelet.

Mr. Diab, 55, can leave his house only with one of five people, including his spouse, who pledged to guarantee his conduct and posted bonds totalling $290,000.

He is expected to be released tomorrow.
