Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, a Sudanese Christian woman, has been freed and is apparently absolved from fulfilling a death sentence that had enraged members of the world community.
Ibrahim had been sentenced to 100 lashes and death by hanging, because she married a Christian man. Ibrahim was born into an Islamic family and considered to still be a Muslim, despite the fact that she had claimed Christianity as her religion. Ibrahim had been pregnant at the time of the sentence. Sudanese officials forced her to give birth in prison, her legs chained to the floor, after she refused to renounce her Christian faith.
Now, it appears Ibrahim will be heading home to her family a free woman.
