Roxana Saberi Interviewed By Diane Sawyer for GMA

saberi_5-28.jpgRecently freed American journalist Roxana Saberi talks to Good Morning America’s Diane Sawyer about her time in an Iranian prison, in an interview airing tomorrow morning.

“I learned many lessons, I learned that, do not fear those who can hurt your body but not your soul. No one can hurt your soul unless you let them,” she said.

Saberi was interviewed earlier today by Melissa Block for NPR. It airs later today on All Things Considered.

Roxana Saberi on NPR Tomorrow

Saberi_5.27.bmpNPR News gets the first in-depth interview with Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi. Saberi, a freelance journalist who has worked for NPR, ABC, Fox News, and others, was released from an Iranian prison earlier this month. NPR host Melissa Block‘s interview with Saberi will air tomorrow afternoon on All Things Considered.

Saberi was released after an Iranian appeals court reduced her 8 year prison sentence for espionage to a two-year suspended sentence. Saberi left Iran with her family on May 15, and arrived in Washington, D.C. on May 22. The 32 year old is a native of Fargo, ND and a former Miss North Dakota.

If you miss the interview on the radio, excerpts will be on NPR.org.
