ImageWASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is praising the release of American journalist Roxana Saberi from a jail in Iran.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Monday that the administration continues to stress that Saberi was wrongly accused, "but we welcome this humanitarian gesture."

The 32-year-old dual Iranian-American citizen was released Monday after four months in jail. An Iranian appeals court suspended her eight-year prison sentence on charges of spying for the U.S.

Gibbs said Obama looks forward to welcoming Saberi back to the United States.
