Iranian President brother Hossein Ferydoun 'released on bail'

The brother of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has been released after being detained for two days by police, Iranian media say.

Hossein Ferydoun was freed on Monday night after reportedly paying millions of dollars of bail.

Mr Ferydoun is believed to have been taken in for questioning on Saturday in connection with a corruption probe.

His detention was seen by some commentators as part of a feud between the president and the judiciary.
