CNN: Iran imprisons American journalist in Tehran

A CNN report from Tehran that aired on Wednesday includes an interview by a local TV station with Roxana’s father, Reza Saberi, from his home in Fargo, ND.

Iran’s judiciary spokesman, Ali Reza Jamshidi, told reporters Tuesday that Roxana Saberi is being held in Evin prison on a court order, but he did not reveal the charges. The prison is Iran’s largest and is also where prominent political prisoners are kept.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry said Monday that the American journalist detained in Iran several weeks ago was engaged in “illegal” activities because she continued working after the government revoked her press credentials two years ago.
