LONDON (Reuters) – Britain confirmed on Wednesday that Iran had released two British and Iranian citizens, Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Anousheh Ashouri, and said they would return to Britain later on Wednesday.
“I am very pleased to confirm that the unfair detention of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Anousheh Ashoori in Iran has ended today and they will now return to Britain,” Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Twitter.
The third two-year-old Morad Tahbaz was released from prison in Iran after permission, Foreign Minister Liz Truss said on Twitter.
“We will continue to work to ensure Morad’s departure from Iran,” Truss added.
British police in connection with Zaghari-Ratcliffe and her family tweeted a picture of her smiling and said she was showing it on board a plane.
“Nazanin is now in the air flying away from a 6-year-old hell in Iran,” legislator Tulip Siddiq said on Twitter.
