Three more European prisoners released by Iran, on their way to Belgium

A week after the release of Olivier Vandecasteele, three more European prisoners have been released by Iran. They are on their way to Belgium, prime minister Alexander De Croo announced on Friday.

Two prisoners are dual Austrian-Iranian nationals and one is Danish. The Dane was arrested in November last year during demonstrations for women's rights. As with Vandecasteele, they will stop in Oman before flying on to Belgium.
