British-Australian still held in Iran while couple released, official says

A British-Australian academic is still being held in Iran while another British-Australian woman and her Australian boyfriend have been released from detention, an official has said.

Australian foreign minister Marise Payne told reporters that it was โ€œwith some enormous reliefโ€ that she could announce Jolie King and Mark Firkin โ€œhave been released and returnedโ€ and all charges against them were dropped.

Ms Payne confirmed British-Australian Kylie Moore-Gilbert is still in Tehranโ€™s notorious Evin prison where she has been for almost a year, having reportedly been handed a 10-year sentence.
