On Thursday's All Things Considered, Melissa Block has an exclusive interview with Roxana Saberi, the Iranian-American journalist who has recently returned to the U.S. after being imprisoned in Iran for 100 days on charges of espionage.

MELISSA BLOCK, host:

At the State Department today, Hillary Clinton met with Roxana Saberi, the freelance journalist who was imprisoned in Iran for more than three months. Afterward, in a brief statement, Saberi thanked those who had worked for her release.

Ms. ROXANA SABERI (Journalist): When I found out that I had the support while I was in prison, I gained a lot of strength and hope and I didn't feel so alone anymore.

BLOCK: Tomorrow on ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, I'll talk with Roxana Saberi in her first major interview since her release and her return to the United States.
