Roxana Saberi meets with Clinton, thanks her for support

itemprop

North Dakota journalist Roxana Saberi is back in the United States after her release from the Iranian prison where she was held for allegedly spying for the U.S. She has been released after several months in prison and met with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to thank her for pushing for her release and rallying others to stand behind her.

Saberi returned to the U.S. last week. In March, Clinton sent a letter directly to the Iranian delegation supporting Saberi's release from prison.

Here is what Saberi had to say: "When I found out that I had the support while I was in prison, I gained a lot of strength and hope, and I didn't feel so alone anymore. It's wonderful to be back in the United States. I'm very proud to be an American, just as I'm proud of my Japanese and Iranian heritage. It's wonderful to be back."
