Sudanese woman freed again…finally leaves Sudan

Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman sentenced to death for Apostasy, has finally been freed after she was re-arrested at Khartoume airport as she attempted to leave Sudan with her family to an undisclosed location.

U.S. State Department during a briefing with reporters in Washington D.C today said Meriam is now free, safe and secure but didn’t make it clear if she’d left Sudan for the U.S, where she’s expected to seek political asylum.

Sudanese officials later said they didn’t arrest Meriam, that she was only detained over a “travel document issue” that was discovered at the airport but she’s since been released and had boarded a flight out of Sudan today. Her whereabouts are currently unknown.
