Woman on Death Row for Apostasy Freed

The Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for marrying a Christian man will walk free. Meriam Ibrahim is considered a Muslim (though she does not consider herself one) and was convicted of apostasy for marrying Christian Daniel Wani. State media says Ibrahim will be released from prison, possibly as soon as Monday. “We heard it just now on the state radio. We really hope it’s true,” said one of her lawyers, Elshareef Ali Mohammed. Ibrahim’s case sparked international outrage, especially when people learned she was forced to give birth to her second child in jail with her legs shackled.
