leave a comment »

In an interview today with ABC News‘ Martha Raddatz, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton voiced her concern for American-Iranian journalist Roxana Saberi, 31, after the Iranian government confirmed her arrest.

“This, unfortunately, demonstrates the nature of the Iranian government,” Clinton said. “That a young Iranian-American woman journalist would be detained this way. The State Department has reached out to our Swiss contacts to ask for information and express our deep concern about this young woman’s fate. We are going to use every tool at our disposal to try to bring her home.”
