FARGO - The family of detained journalist Roxana Saberi now knows for certain she's alive.

An attorney who was turned away Saturday for not having the correct paperwork was able to meet with the 31-year-old Sunday morning at a courthouse.


And while the lawyer didn't see any signs of torture, the Fargo native began to cry when she met the lawyer and seemed "very depressed," her father said.

The freelance journalist has been imprisoned in Iran for more than a month.
