ImageTEHRAN, Iran (AP) — The father of American journalist jailed in Iran for allegedly spying for the U.S. says his daughter has ended her hunger strike for health reasons.

Roxana Saberi, a dual Iranian-American national was convicted of spying for the U.S. last month and sentenced to eight years in prison after a one-day trial behind closed doors.

Reza Saberi, the journalist's father, told The Associated Press Wednesday that his daughter ended her hunger strike Monday evening to prevent further deterioration of her health.

Iran's judiciary, however, has denied that Saberi was ever on a hunger strike. An appeals court will hear her case next week.
