Journalist Roxana Saberi, released from prison in Iran earlier this month, is back in North Dakota. The 32-year-old Saberi was greeted at the Fargo airport by a crowd of well-wishers and "Welcome home, Roxana" signs. Saberi, fighting back tears, said she was surprised at the emotions she felt. "It's the first time I've ever really cried in public," she said. Gov. John Hoeven and Rep. Earl Pomeroy were among the officials who met her after she stepped off the plane Saturday afternoon. Hoeven called it a "happy day for the people of North Dakota." Students and teachers from her alma mater, Concordia College in neighboring Moorhead, Minnesota, brought maroon and gold balloons.
