CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Australia's prime minister says an Australian student has been released from detention in North Korea.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison told Parliament on Thursday that Alek Sigley had left North Korea and was "safe and well."

The 29-year-old Pyongyang university student lost contact with family and friends in Japan and Australia on Tuesday last week.

Morrison's announcement was the first confirmation that he had been detained.
