A court in Pakistan has freed disgraced nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan from house arrest, his lawyer says.
Mr Khan, who has been under tight restrictions since 2004, can now leave home and receive visitors but must still report to the government.
He must give 48 hours’ notice if he wants to leave Islamabad.
Mr Khan admitted transferring nuclear secrets to other countries in 2004 but was later pardoned by former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf.
“The high court has declared him a free citizen,” lawyer Iqbal Jaffry told local television.
The Pakistani government says the restrictions that remain are for his own security.
