Fiance says journalist released by Iran

The fiance of journalist Dorothy Parvaz says she has been released by Iranian authorities and is now back in Doha, Qatar.
Parvaz's fiance, Todd Barker, says she called him early Wednesday with news of her release as she was clearing customs in Qatar.
Barker says Parvaz told him she was interrogated and treated very well during her detention and that she is fine.
Parvaz, who has Canadian, American and Iranian citizenship, works for the Qatar-based news agency Al-Jazeera. Parvaz went missing after leaving Qatar on April 29 for Damascus to cover the anti-government uprising in Syria.
Syrian authorities said Parvaz was deported to Iran shortly after her arrival. Iranian authorities did not acknowledge whether they were holding her.
