Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian, freed from Iran on Sunday after being held in custody more than a year and half, is in good spirits and doing "a hell of a lot better than I was 48 hours ago," the newspaper said on Sunday.

Rezaian and two other Iranian-Americans arrived in Germany after leaving Tehran on Sunday in a prisoner swap following the lifting of most international sanctions on Iran under last year's landmark nuclear accord.

Rezaian, 39, the Post's Tehran bureau chief, was arrested in Iran in July 2014 and sentenced last November to a prison term. Iranian prosecutors had accused him of espionage, charges the Post had dismissed as "absurd."
