(Newser) – Roxana Saberi’s appeal hearing will take place tomorrow, Reuters reports. The lawyer for the jailed American-Iranian journalist said it’s unclear when his client will find out if her 8-year sentence for espionage has been dropped or reduced. "The verdict could come next week or any other time,” he said. US officials have called the charges against Saberi baseless and demanded her immediate release.
