Roxana Saberi on the Rocks in Iran

American journalist Roxana Saberi detained in Iran.

A 31 year old lady journalist is now the subject of concern by her parents. Her father, Reza Saberi, says that the safety of Roxana Saberi might be in jeopardy. Roxana was arrested a month ago while she went to buy wine when a store owner reported her. If you are not aware of it, alcoholic drinks are "hot goods" in some Arab or Muslim countries. This was the reason why the police in Iran arrested Roxana Saberi.

After her arrest, Roxana Saberi instructed her parents not to announce this incident to the media, since it will just complicate the case as she was scheduled for release 18 days ago. Until now, Roxana had never contacted her father about her condition.

Roxana Saberi was formerly Miss North Dakota. FOXNews.com revealed that "moved to Iran six years ago and had previously reported for NPR, the BBC and FOX News". Because of this incident, Roxana Saberi was confiscated of her press credentials, that is why she cannot "work as a journalist". We sure hope that Roxana will just emerge fine and unharmed from this imbroglio.

  1. Just a note to say that Iran is not an Arab country, and that they were not Iraqi police, since it took place in Iran.
