The father of a detained Iranian-American journalist says a meeting between his daughter and her lawyer is a step in the right direction.
Roxana Saberi has reported for several English news channels during her six-year stay in Iran.

Reza Saberi said his 31-year old daughter's lawyer found Roxana depressed, but saw no signs of physical torture after meeting with her in prison.

The North Dakota resident added that Roxana was allowed to have visitors but the exact date of her release was not yet clear.

Roxana Saberi was detained more than a month ago for continuing her work as a journalist after Iranian authorities revoked her press card in 2006.

During her six-year stay in Iran, Saberi has reported for the BBC, NPR, and Fox News.

On Friday, one of Tehran's deputy prosecutors announced that Saberi would soon be released.

"The investigation has been carried out and she will be released within a few days," Hassan Haddad said.
