Roxana Saberi is Free

It has been announced that Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi has been freed from an Iranian jail, where she was sent after being convicted of spying.

Saberi was on hunger strike, but an Iranian appeal court has just reduced her sentence from 8 years jail to two years suspended.

Her father has confirmed that she has 'just left' the prison, the notorious Evin jail in Tehran.

Seeing as we know that not much happens in Iran without the backing of the Mullahs, I can only deduce that this case is what I said it was all along - part of an elaborate game of chess between Obama and the Iranian regime.

I wish Miss Saberi all the best.
