NORWALK - The family of the Norwalk man jailed in Russia for his part in a Greenpeace protest says he has been released from jail after posting bail.

Capt. Peter Willcox was one of 30 people arrested in September for protesting on a ship against offshore drilling in the Arctic Ocean.

Willcox's family says he called them and says he is doing well.

A United Nations mandated tribunal has ordered Russia to immediately release the ship and its crew from the country.
