A US journalist has been arrested in Iran, and her father said Sunday she told him in a brief phone call she was detained after buying a bottle of wine. Roxana Saberi, 31, has not been heard from since her last call on February 10, her father, Reza, told The Associated Press on Sunday. "We haven't heard anything," he said. The family decided to go public, he said, "because we wanted to get some information." Officials in Iran have not publicly confirmed the arrest. A duty officer at the US State Department said Sunday they were looking into an AP request for information on the case.
