An American woman charged over allegedly insulting President Robert Mugabe on Twitter has been released from prison on bail.

Witnesses saw Martha O'Donovan, 25, emerge from the Chikurubi maximum security prison outside the capital, Harare, and was driven in a US embassy vehicle.

Her lawyers did not speak to the news media, but O'Donovan will return to court on Wednesday.

Judge Clement Phiri of the High Court said on Thursday that there was a "patent absence of facts" in the state's case against O'Donovan, who was arrested last week on accusations she insulted Mugabe in a Twitter post
