Jason Rezaian Heads Home

The much awaited final chapter of a long ordeal.

Following his Jan. 16 release from Iran’s Evin Prison and a week of recuperation in Germany, Washington Post correspondent Jason Rezaian is finally headed back to the U.S.

“Today my family and I left Landstuhl to return home to the United States. I appreciate the exceptional care I received from the doctors and medical staff, as well as the hospitality we were shown during our stay on the base,” Rezaian said in a statement.

Rezaian and his family’s ride for the journey back home is Jeff Bezos‘ private jet, according to CNN. The Washington Post owner flew to Germany to meet with the family and accompany them back to the U.S.
