Reporters were allowed brief access to American student Amanda Knox in her Italian jail cell today, where she revealed that the night of her conviction on December 5th for the 2007 murder of roommate Meredith Kercher, she was "feeling horrendous" but the guards "held (her) all night." Amanda also said that she hopes to continue the classes she started in Perugia in 2007, saying "I miss stimulating conversations." While this report is slightly less vague than the quotes Amanda gave ABC last week, the report, which also mentions the jail's unusually luxe amenities (such as private bathrooms with bidets and free weekly salon services) notes that:
"The visit was arranged by Fondazione Italia USA, which promotes close relations between the two countries, in an effort to heal any rift over accusations that Italy's justice system is unfair."
The story goes on to mention that Amanda shares her cell with a 53-year-old New Orleans native who is serving four years on drug charges.
