BANGKOK (AFP): Thailand on Thursday (Nov 26) confirmed it had returned three Iranians jailed over a botched 2012 bombing in Bangkok, after Teheran freed an Australian-British lecturer imprisoned for spying.

The kingdom's corrections department said two of them -- Masoud Sedaghatzadeh and Saeid Moradi -- were transferred as prisoners while the third, Mohammad Khazaei, was granted a royal pardon in August.
