U.S. citizen allowed to leave Iranian prison for a week

Siamak NamaziSiamak Namazi, an Iranian American imprisoned in Iran for nearly seven years on espionage-related charges rejected by Washington as baseless, has been allowed out of Tehran's Evin prison on a one-week furlough, his lawyer said on Saturday.

Separately, his father and former United Nations official Baquer Namazi, who was also convicted on charges of "collaboration with a hostile government," has been allowed to leave Iran for medical treatment, U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said in a statement.

It was unclear if the moves might be a step toward Siamak's full release, nor whether it signals the possible furlough or release of other U.S. citizens detained in Iran.

Soon after news of Siamak's furlough broke, Iran's Nournews said an unnamed regional nation had mediated between Tehran and Washington for the "simultaneous release of prisoners."
