WASHINGTON:  A Swiss plane carrying four American prisoners and some family members left Tehran on Sunday as part of a prisoner swap deal, a U.S. official told Reuters.

“Yes, the plane has left,” the official told Reuters.

The four are Jason Rezaian, the Washington Post’s Tehran bureau chief, Saeed Abedini, a pastor from Idaho, Amir Hekmati, a former Marine from Flint, Michigan, and Nosratollah Khosravi-Roodsari.

A fifth prisoner, the American student Matthew Trevithick, was released separately from the other four on Saturday, a U.S. official said.
