BERLIN (AP) — Germany’s international radio station Deutsche Welle says a dissident Iranian actress who is one of its bloggers has been released on €58,000 ($84,000) bail in Iran.

The head of the radio station’s Persian-language department, Jamsheed Faroughi, said Pegah Ahangarani was released from Teheran’s Evin prison Wednesday.

He says her relatives told the station it remains unclear what the 27-year-old is accused of and authorities have warned her not to speak to the media.

Ahangarani was arrested earlier this month when she was about to leave for Germany to write a blog for Deutsche Welle about the women’s football World Cup.

Ahangarani was also arrested briefly in 2009 after the disputed presidential elections over charges of playing a role in the postelection riots.
