US citizen to be released from Iranian jail in prisoner swap

A Chinese-American researcher convicted of spying in Iran has been freed in exchange for the release of an Iranian scientist held by the US. Xiyue Wang was arrested in Iran in 2016 while Massoud Soleimani, a stem cell expert, was arrested at a Chicago airport last year. Soleimani was accused of violating trade sanctions by trying to export biological material to Iran.
