A British-Iranian mother who is serving a prison sentence in Iran has been temporarily released.
Charity worker Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe has been given temporary release from prison in Iran for three days, her British husband Richard Ratcliffe said.
She is now with her family in Damavand and has been reunited with her four-year-old daughter, Gabriella.
The temporary release was meant to allow her to see her family, particularly her daughter, the ambassador said.
After spending two weeks in Iran with her parents in April 2016, Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe and Gabriella prepared to board a flight at Tehran Imam Khomeini International Airport, where she was arrested.
Former British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson was heavily criticized past year after he claimed Zaghari-Ratcliffe was "teaching people journalism" when she was arrested.
"I was so emotional to see my grandmother today", she said in comments issued by the Free Nazanin campaign.
"Furlough is not full freedom - we want her home, not just on holiday from prison - but it is still such a good step".

Omarosa: I never signed that 'draconian' White House nondisclosure agreement
The recordings came out as Omarosa promotes her new book " Unhinged , ' where she turns on her former boss and 'Apprentice " host. Minutes later, Trump retweeted Frank Luntz denying a claim in Manigault Newman's book that Luntz heard Trump use the N-word.
"This was a very happy surprise after a number of false dawns recently, which had been increasingly unsettling", he said.
Hunt told reporters at United Nations headquarters in NY that she "is innocent" and "every day that she is in prison is a reminder to the whole world of a gross injustice". Zaghari-Ratcliffe denies the charges.
"She immediately joined her four-year-old daughter, Gabriella who welcomed her mom with flowers", he said.
Asked about whether the change of Foreign Secretary has made a difference with the Iranian authorities, Mr Ratcliffe told Sky News: "I think it's been a fresh start for us all".
"I didn't tell Gabriella or for a long time my mum - so if it didn't happen I would be the only one to suffer".
The rights group's call was echoed by UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who said in a post on Twitter that efforts to win a permanent release for Zaghari-Ratcliffe would continue.
There is little information about the events leading up to Mrs Zaghari-Ratcliffe's temporary release but it comes as the British Government is considering repaying Tehran £400 million from a pre-1979 arms deal.
