Iran confirms to free U.S.-born reporter: IRNA

TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran’s judiciary spokesman confirmed on Monday that U.S.-born journalist Roxana Saberi would be freed after an appeals court reduced her eight-year jail sentence for espionage to a two-year suspended term.

“In consideration of this ruling, naturally she will be freed,” judiciary spokesman Alireza Jamshidi told the official IRNA news agency, without giving a date.
