A major prisoner swap between the US and Iran is expected to get underway shortly.
It's part of a deal brokered by Qatar, after two years of indirect negotiations. Under the agreement, 6-billion-dollars of frozen Iranian funds is being transferred to banks in Qatar. Washington says Tehran can only use that money for humanitarian needs. Five US prisoners held in Iran are expected to touch down in Qatar in a few hours.
