(Newser) – Jailed journalist Roxana Saberi has ended her 2-week hunger strike a day after the Iranian judiciary said she'll get an appeal hearing on her spying conviction, Reuters reports. The Iranian-American consumed only dates and sweetened water and became "very weak," her father said. The hearing on Saberi's 8-year sentence for spying is scheduled for next week.
