Iran: US journalist's case will get fair review

TEHRAN, Iran (AP)- Iran's foreign minister has assured his visiting Japanese counterpart that the case of an imprisoned American journalist will get a fair review on appeal.

Roxana Saberi is imprisoned in Tehran for allegedly spying for the U.S. Saberi is a dual Iranian-American citizen who was born in Fargo, North Dakota. Her father is Iranian and her mother is Japanese. She was arrested in January in Tehran and sentenced last month to eight years in prison after a one-day trial behind closed doors. Her case has raised an international outcry and her lawyer in Iran has appealed the verdict.

Saberi's father says she had gone on a hunger strike after she was convicted and has since become "very weak." Iran's judiciary denies she is on hunger strike.

Washington has called the spying charges against Saberi "baseless" and insisted Iran release her.
