Saberi’s parents plan trip to Iran

The father of imprisoned journalist Roxana Saberi of Fargo said he and his wife are making plans to go to Iran to see her in a couple of days.

Reza Saberi said he hopes a visit with his daughter will lift her spirits.

The Iranian government has said Roxana Saberi was imprisoned for doing reporting work in the country after her press credentials expired. Her parents found out about her arrest in a brief phone call from her Feb. 10.

Saberi, who grew up in Fargo, is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Iran who has reported for a number of international news organizations.
