Russian former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky has been reunited with his parents and son after being freed from jail.

Mr Khodorkovsky, who spent 10 years in prison, was pardoned by President Vladimir Putin on Friday.

The release was requested on humanitarian grounds as Mr Khodorkovsky's mother is suffering from cancer.
