WASHINGTON - A Vice News reporter held on terrorism charges in Turkey was released on bail after spending more than four months in prison, the news magazine said on Tuesday.

The reporter, Mohammed Rasool, an Iraqi national, was detained in August, along with two other Vice journalists, both Britons, in southeastern Turkey and sent to prison.

A Turkish court freed the two British journalists on September 3 but ruled to keep Rasool in custody pending investigation after assessing an appeal request from the trio's lawyers.
