NPR interviews journalists who experienced Evin
Evin jail is the prison on the outskirts of Tehran where Roxana is being held, but she’s not the first journalist to have bedded down in its steel and concrete confines. National Public Radio conducts audio interviews with Iranian journalist Omid Memarian, who was imprisoned in 2004 for 56 days, and executive Washington editor for the Wall Street Journal Gerald Seib. Accused of espionage while covering the Iraq-Iran war in 1987, Seib spent four days in Evin before being released. Listen to their stories.
