    ( CNN) Iran has freed four prisoners from the United States, including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian, Iran’s semi-official FARS news agency reported Saturday, citing Tehran’s prosecutor.

    Senior U.S. administration officials corroborated the release as part of a captive swap involving seven Iranians held on sanctions charges. The bargain comes after more than a year of secret negotiations, the officials said.
