Sudanese Woman Sentenced to Death for Apostasy will be set Free
Meriam Ibrahim, 27, who was sentenced to death for apostasy, was freed on Monday by a Khartoum court. She is now with her Christian husband and their two children, including an 18-month-old son. Ibrahim was convicted of apostasy for marrying her Christian husband, which is forbidden for Muslims in Sudan. Though Muslim men can marry outside their faith, Muslim women are prohibited, and by law, children must adopt the religion of their father. Islamic Shariah law has been in place in Sudan since the 1980s and is currently being enforced by Islamist President Omar Bashir.
