Iran's judiciary spokesman says an appeals court will hear the case of an American journalist convicted of spying next week. Roxana Saberi, whose father says she has been on a hunger strike for two weeks, was convicted last month of passing intelligence to the US and sentenced to eight years in prison after a one-day trial behind closed doors. Spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi says that in the appeal, experts from the Bar Association, Intelligence Ministry and the Prosecutor's Office have been invited to attend. Jamshidi denied that Saberi was on a hunger strike. Saberi moved to Iran six years ago and worked as a freelance journalist for news organizations including National Public Radio before her arrest in January.
