Freed Lebanese man Zakka arrives in Beirut from Iran -airport source

BEIRUT, June 11 (Reuters) - Lebanese businessman Nizar Zakka, who had been detained in Iran since 2015, landed in Beirut on Tuesday after the government secured his release, a source at the airport told Reuters.

Zakka, an information technology specialist who also has U.S. residency, had been detained on charges of anti-state activity. He flew out of Tehran with Lebanon’s security chief Abbas Ibrahim on Tuesday. (Reporting by Ellen Francis; Editing by Catherine Evans)
