A Taiwanese woman with US citizenship has been released on bail but barred from leaving Taiwan after mailing a loaded gun and bullets from the United States to Tainan earlier this week, investigators said Saturday.

The woman, identified only by her surname Wang, has been granted release on NT$100,000 (US$3,250) bail after questioning by Tainan prosecutors who imposed a soft form of home confinement on Wang and barred her from leaving Taiwan.
