Iranian scientist Massoud Soleimani, who was facing trial in the US, was freed following a prisoner exchange deal between Iran and the US. The swap took place in Zurich on Saturday.

Still images show Soleimani and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif shaking hands before taking off, and then talking on board of the plane.

Chinese-American scholar Xiyue Wang, detained in Tehran since 2016, was also released in Zurich in exchange for Soleimani.
