A Chinese tech executive who was detained in Canada on US fraud charges has been released after years of diplomatic tensions over her fate.

Meng Wanzhou, Huawei’s chief financial officer, was detained in December 2018 at the request of the United States.

But an agreement reached with the US Department of Justice saw her extradition request dropped on Friday.

The case has angered China and strained relations with the United States and Canada.
