A young French academic arrested in Iran following last year's disputed presidential elections has left the country and is on a plane returning home, France's presidential palace said Sunday.

Clotilde Reiss, 25, was convicted of provoking unrest and spying in the aftermath of Iran's June election, but the 10-year jail term was commuted to a fine of 3 billion rials ($300,000). Her lawyer said he paid the fine Saturday.
