Iran frees more Europeans after prisoner swap

Austrian officials have voiced their relief after two of the country's citizens were released by Iran after years of imprisonment in the country.
Ednews informs via BCC that dual Austrian-Iranian nationals Kamran Ghaderi and Massud Mossaheb were freed as part of a prisoner swap involving Europeans and an Iranian diplomat.
The pair's detention in Iran, on spying and security charges respectively, attracted criticism internationally.
Belgium said a third person - a Danish citizen - had also been released.
The trio were flying into Belgium via Oman following medical examinations, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo said.
Local media reported that they will be met at the Melsbroek military airport just outside Brussels by Foreign Minister Hadja Lahbib.
Her Austrian counterpart, Alexander Schallenberg, tweeted his relief that both men could come home after years of "arduous imprisonment".
In a statement from the foreign ministry, he said Austria would leave "no stone unturned" to secure the release of a third citizen who is still imprisoned in Iran and whose sentence is currently subject to appeal.
Chancellor Karl Nehammer, meanwhile, said the released men's long path of suffering was now at an end.
Mr Ghaderi was arrested in Iran in 2016, and sentenced to ten years in jail on spying charges - after what his family says was a forced confession.
