Iran has agreed to hand over a U.S. permanent resident imprisoned for years in Tehran to Lebanese officials, an Iranian judiciary official said Tuesday, providing the first official confirmation that Nizar Zakka would be sent back to his native Lebanon.


"A court has accepted the condition of freedom of Nizar Zakka and he will be handed over to Lebanese officials," Esmaili said, according to the judiciary's Mizan news agency.
