Roxana Saberi Gives First Interview to NPR

saberi2_200Well, she’s certainly one tough cookie.

Roxana Saberi talks about her 100 days of imprisonment in Iran to NPR. She says she was forced to confess and when she recanted her confession was rushed to trial. Saberi went on hunger strike for two weeks and only stopped apparently when her mother threatened a hunger strike of her own.

A friend of mine, a foreign correspondent, who worked with Saberi in Iran, says he warned her that the climate was getting too hot there and suggested she leave. She apparently is not a quitter.
