Kylie Moore-Gilbert was freed in exchange for three Iranian prisoners, the BCC reported on Wednesday, citing Iranian state media.

Kylie Moore-Gilbert, a lecturer at Melbourne University, had been detained in Iran since September 2018. She was accused of being a spy, which she denied.

A video released on Wednesday evening by Iran's state broadcaster shows Ms Moore-Gilbert entering a van with her belongings, as well as the three Iranian men, who she has reportedly been exchanged for, being celebrated upon their return to the country.

It was not immediately clear when Moore-Gilbert would arrive back in Australia.

Accompanied by another Western woman in a colorful headscarf, Moore-Gilbert wore a blue face mask tucked under her chin and a stoic expression.

Global pressure on Iran to secure her release has escalated in recent months following reports that her health was deteriorating during long stretches of solitary confinement and that she had been transferred to the notorious Qarchak Prison, east of Tehran. In her letters to Prime Minister Morrison, she wrote that she had been subjected to "grievous violations" of her rights, including psychological torture. Most of the first two years of her detention were spent in the notorious Evin prison.
