Reza Saberi

Reza Saberi, father of Iranian American reporter Roxana Saberi, talks to the media outside the court in Tehran where her lawyers tried to get her eight-year prison sentence reduced. She was convicted of spying for the U.S. but her family and lawyers say her confession was signed only under duress after she had been held for weeks in a solitary confinement wing without access to an attorney.
