TEHRAN — Three days after being arrested and shown repenting on national television for their involvement in a fan video for the Pharrell Williams song ‘‘Happy,’’ six Iranians have apparently been released from jail.

A seventh, the director of the video, is still being held, according to media reports. Iranian authorities have not confirmed the reports.

One of the women in the video, Reihane Taravati, posted a photo of herself on Instagram following her release, appearing without Iran’s mandated hijab head covering for women.

The photo was accompanied by a note that read:

‘‘Hi I’m back. Thank you @pharrell and everyone who cared about us love you so much and missed you so much.’’

While no official details about the release of the six have been issued, reports have surfaced that one of the conditions of their bail was that they not speak with media about their detainment or treatment while in jail.

It is still unclear whether they will face any charges or have to appear in court.
