LOS ANGELES - CBS television will broadcast a special report about the Amanda Knox case that includes a letter written by the American student while behind bars for murder in Italy, as well as video diaries made by her best friend.

CBS said on Thursday that "Amanda Knox: The Untold Story" will air on Saturday". The network said the program would reveal "the cruel manipulation and sexual intimidation Amanda endured while behind bars, in her own words, from a letter that she wrote."

Knox, 24, was freed from four years in an Italian prison on Monday after an appeals court overturned her conviction for murdering British housemate Meredith Kercher in 2007 in what prosecutors alleged was a drug-fueled sexual assault.

She made a tearful return on Wednesday to her home city Seattle, where she has largely been seen as an innocent girl trapped abroad in an archaic justice system.
