Royal Marine Alexander Blackman, also known as Marine A, was released from prison in the early hours of Friday.
The former Marine, who has served more than three years in prison for shooting dead an injured Taliban fighter in Afghanistan in 2011, was driven away from HMP Erlestoke, Wiltshire, at around 12.20am.
Blackman hid in the back of a black Audi estate vehicle as he was taken away.
The commando was jailed for life after he was convicted of murder in 2013. The conviction was quashed by the Court Martial Appeal Court and replaced with diminished responsibility manslaughter last month, following a high-profile campaign to free him.
