Diary

Roxana Saberi *almost* extracted from Iran.

With any luck, she’ll be out of there by the middle of the week.

Iran ‘to release’ reporter Saberi

An court in Iran has cut US-Iranian reporter Roxana Saberi’s jail sentence to two years suspended, and will free her later on Monday, her lawyer says.

The court heard Ms Saberi’s appeal against her original eight-year prison sentence on Sunday, after an international outcry.

See also the Telegraph, New York Times, & Hot Air. Background here. I have some comments on this story, but I think that I’ll save for them for after I hear that the woman is out of… that country, and back in the United States.

PS: We should see the ‘anonymous’ leak from the State Department talking about everything that the White House did to free this woman by Wednesday.
