Iranian authorities released on Tuesday one of three individuals who were detained along with American citizen and Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian last week, a source close to the family of the released detainee told CNN.

The released detainee is the husband of an Iranian-American photojournalist who remains in custody with Rezaian and his wife, according to the source.

Authorities have yet to identify the photojournalist. Iranian officials have yet to explain why the journalists were detained.

A judiciary official told Iranian state media last week that the government would comment on the detentions soon after the conclusion of an investigation.
