Orlando - The neighbourhood watch leader charged with fatally shooting an unarmed black teenager is in a safe house that is being protected by his security team.

George Zimmerman was released on Friday after posting bail for the second time on a second-degree murder charge in the killing of Trayvon Martin. His attorney said on Sunday he was in Seminole County in central Florida.

Some of Martin's supporters have been angry Zimmerman was not arrested until 46 days after the February shooting, and Zimmerman has received death threats.

He was released from jail after his defence fund helped him post 10% of the $1m bond.

A judge revoked his previous $150 000 bond last month when prosecutors presented evidence that Zimmerman and his wife misled the court about how much money they had.
