An Irish citizen of Egyptian background who was detained in Egypt for four years on accusations of taking part in clashes with police flew home to an emotional family reunion at Dublin airport on Tuesday.

"Thank you to everyone who helped I love you all".

The 21-year-old landed at Dublin Airport at around 11 o'clock this morning.

At the age of 17, Ibrahim Halawa was arrested in 2013 and spent the next 4 years in prison after repeated delays to his mass trial.

Despite being acquitted of all charges and cleared for release, his return to Dublin was delayed for weeks as new travel documents had to be issued for him.
