(Newser) – The North Dakota parents of jailed journalist Roxana Saberi have visited their daughter in an Iranian jail, AP reports. They spoke with her about 30 minutes and she appeared to be in good health, her attorney said. The Iranian-American freelancer—who has lived in Iran for six years—has been accused by authorities of working after her press credentials expired.
