Journalist Roxana Saberi, recently detained in Iran, asked us
to release this statement on her behalf in response to the convictions of Laura Ling and Euna Lee in North Korea: "As a fellow journalist, I am
shocked and saddened to hear about the heavy sentence handed to Laura Ling and
Euna Lee. I hope that a way can be found to reunite them with their families as
soon as possible and I will continue to pray for their swift release."
