A Jewish woman is to go free after spending 15 years in a South American jail on terror charges.
A judge in Lima, Peru, granted American activist Lori Berenson, 40, early parole on grounds of good behaviour.
The New Yorker, who gave birth to a son in 2009 while behind bars, was arrested in 1995 for collaborating with the communist Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA).
Ms Berenson, the only American Peru has ever jailed on terror charges, was convicted as an accomplice of the leftist guerilla group and for her involvement in a plan to attack the Peruvian Congress.
