Journalist Roxana Saberi, released from prison in Iran last month, has been honored by Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism. At graduation ceremonies Saturday, Saberi was given the Medill Medal for Courage in Journalism. She graduated from Medill in 1999. She told graduates that the experience of being imprisoned gave her new insight into the meaning of courage. Saberi, who lived in Iran for six years and has dual citizenship, was arrested January 31 and charged with spying for the United States. She was sentenced to eight years in prison, but an appeals court reduced that to a two-year suspended sentence and released her on May 11.
