"I'm happy to be going home" ... John McAfee.
Anti-virus software founder John McAfee has been released from detention in Guatemala and is heading to the US, said a Guatemala Interior Ministry official.
Guatemalan immigration officials have escorted McAfee to the Guatemala City airport.
The former Silicon Valley millionaire said he will catch a flight to Miami, Florida. "I'm free, I'm going to America," he said.

McAfee, 67, was detained last week for immigration violations after sneaking into Guatemala from Belize, where authorities sought to question him about the murder of his neighbour, fellow American Gregory Faull.
McAfee has led the world's media on a game of online hide-and-seek in Belize and Guatemala since he fled after Faull's death, peppering the internet with quotes and revelations about his unpredictable life.
"I'm happy to be going home," Mr McAfee, dressed in a black suit, said as he was escorted to Guatema
