Sudanese Christian woman again freed

June 27, 2014

A Sudanese Christian woman who was convicted of apostasy, freed, and then rearrested, has been freed again, according to an Associated Press report.

Meriam Ibrahim, 27, is the daughter of a Muslim father and Christian mother. Though raised a Christian, she was convicted of renouncing Islam and sentenced to death before an international diplomatic outcry helped lead to her initial release.
