The father of an American journalist charged by Iran with espionage says he will stay in the country until his daughter is released. In an exclusive interview with Associated Press Television News Thursday morning, Reza Saberi said he recently visited his daughter and that she was extremely weak and thin. The journalist's father demanded the Iranian government release his daughter as soon as possible so she can return to her normal life. Roxana Saberi has been jailed for more than two months in Iran. A judge announced Wednesday that she had been charged with spying for the United States and would stand trial next week.
