Iran state TV says Tehran has released British-Australian academic Kylie Moore-Gilbert in exchange for three Iranians held abroad, according to reports.

Moore-Gilbert was a Melbourne University lecturer before being imprisoned at Tehran’s Evin Prison in September 2018.

She was sentenced to 10 years on espionage charges.

"An Iranian businessman and two Iranian citizens who were detained abroad on baseless charges were exchanged for a dual national spy named Kylie Moore-Gilbert, who worked for the Zionist regime," the Iranian Young Journalist Club news website said, according to the Telegraph.
