Iran frees Australian detained couple

ماریس پاین

Tehran (ISNA) - Iran has freed an Australian couple detained for several months and dropped its charges against them, Australia’s Foreign Minister Marise Payne said on Saturday.

The couple, identified by the ministry as Australian Mark Firkin and British-Australian Jolie King, were said by media to have been detained over accusations of flying a drone without a permit.

“The ordeal they have been through is now over, they are being reunited with their loved ones,” Payne told a televised news conference, according to Euronews.
