Saberi: 'happy to be free'

US-Iranian journalist, Roxana Saberi, has thanked those who helped her win her freedom in her first public appearance following her release from prison.

She was freed after four months in jail, part of what was originally an eight year sentence for spying for the United States.

She has always denied the charges and her imprisonment sparked protests calling for her release.

Jon Leyne reports.
