US Journalist Roxana Saberi Freed
American-Iranian journalist Roxana Saberi has now been freed.
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A lawyer for a U.S. journalist jailed in Iran says she has been freed from prison after an appeals court suspended her eight-year jail sentence.
Abdolsamad Khorramshahi says Roxana Saberi is "now out of jail."
An Iranian appeals court has reduced the eight-year jail sentence to a suspended two-year term, her lawyers said. Ms Saberi was given the lengthy sentence during a secret hearing last month that led to a diplomatic incident between Washington and Tehran.
