An Iranian semi-official news agency says a court has lifted a ban on the Reuters news agency, allowing it to restart its operations in Iran.

The Saturday report by ISNA quotes deputy culture minister Mohammad Jafar Mohammad Zadeh as saying the court's verdict has been delivered to Reuters's lawyer.

The news agency was banned by Iranian authorities over publishing a report on martial arts training of Iranian women in April 2012.
