An Israeli photographer jailed by Libya for five months has returned home after an Austrian tycoon brokered a deal for his freedom that involved the delivery of 20 "prefab" homes to the Gaza Strip.

Rafael Rafram Chaddad, an Israeli-Tunisian dual national, disappeared in March in Libya, where he was photographing Jewish heritage sites.

Libya bans Israelis from entering the country. Mr Chaddad was travelling on his Tunisian passport.
