An Iranian nuclear scientist who disappeared more than a year ago and mysteriously turned up in the US is returning home. Pakistan's embassy in Washington will help Shahram Amiri head back to Iran.
Amiri appeared in a series of videos saying that he was kidnapped by American and Saudi agents and taken to the US against his will. Earlier this week, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Amiri's decision over whether to return to Iran was his alone to make. It is the latest development since the missing scientist disappeared while on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in June last year.
