LONDON (Reuters) – Jailed British-Iranian aid worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been temporarily released in Iran for two weeks, her husband said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Unfortunately, Nazanin will be exceptionally required to wear an ankle tag during the furlough, which her parents have now hired from the authorities,” Richard Ratcliffe said. “Nazanin’s movements will be restricted to 300m from her parents’ home.”
