Iran has released Kylie Moore-Gilbert, an Australian-British academic jailed in Iran for espionage, in exchange for the release of three Iranians detained abroad, the official IRIB news agency reported on Wednesday.
Iran has exchanged “Zionist spy” Moore-Gilbert with three Iranians who were arrested abroad for violating sanctions on Iran, IRIB said.
IRIB did not say in which country the three Iranians, who it described as “economic activists,” were detained.
Moore-Gilbert was arrested in Iran in 2018 and had been serving a 10-year sentence on espionage charges, which she rejects.
