The lawyer of an American journalist detained in Iran a month ago says his client is in good spirits and appears to be healthy. Abdolsamad Khorramshahi said he met his client, Roxana Saberi, Tuesday for the second time in a week. Khorramshahi says Saberi has been informed of the chargers against her, but he said he could not comment further until he reads the indictment against her. Saberi is a dual citizen of the US and Iran who has reported for a number of international news organizations. Iranian officials have said she was engaged in "illegal" activities because she continued working in Iran after the government revoked her press credentials.
