leave a comment »

From The Women on the Web blog:

… Roxana Saberi, finally got to see her parents today. Saberi, 31, has been held in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison since January.

“They told me that she was OK and has been given access to a television and books in the prison,” one family friend told AFP.

Saberi’s parents reportedly said she was in good condition. Her father had previously said he was extremely worried about her mental state. Saberi has been indicted and her case will go before Tehran’s revolutionary court; the exact charges against her are still unknown. Iran says she was gathering news illegally on expired press credentials. The Iranian American was born in the United States; her father lives in Fargo, ND. She has reported for the BBC, NPR, FOX News and other media.
