'Jihad Jamie' Released from Jail

A 31-year-old American woman, Jamie Paulin-Ramirez, who was arrested by Irish police in connection to an apparent plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist, has been released from jail along with two other women thought tied to the plot. Police said there were no charges against the women or against four other suspects. Under Irish law, none of the names of the arrested were released. In a teary interview with The New York Times, Paulin-Ramirez’s mother said her daughter declared her conversion to Islam last Easter. “I am terrified for my daughter,” she said. “And that baby is my heart.” Paulin-Ramirez, dubbed “Jihad Jamie,” was the second woman linked to the alleged plot, designed to kill an artist who had made fun of the Prophet Mohammed. In the U.S last week, an indictment was unsealed against Collen La Rose who was known online as Jihad Jane. Paulin-Ramirez's family now expects the woman to be deported.
