U.S. journalist held at prison

March 04, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Iran's judiciary spokesman said a U.S. journalist detained about a month ago was being held in a prison north of the capital, Tehran.

Ali Reza Jamshidi said 31-year-old Roxana Saberi was being held in Evin prison on a court order. He refused to provide further details.

A day earlier, Foreign Ministry spokesman Hasan Qashqavi said that Saberi was engaged in "illegal" activities because she continued working in Iran after the government revoked her press credentials in 2006.
