A court in Izmir ordered the release from house arrest of US pastor Andrew Brunson on Friday, confirming earlier reports of the White House having reached a deal with Turkey on the matter.

Brunson was arrested two years ago over alleged links to the outlawed Kurdish PKK party and to the Fetullah Gulen movement, which Turkey claims was behind the 2016 attempted coup.

The US national was handed a prison sentence on Friday, but was freed based on time already served under house arrest.
