Posted by addisethiopia on July 24, 2014

FreeChristMariam Yehya Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman sentenced to death in Sudan for apostasy but subsequently pardoned, arrived in Rome on Thursday, the Italian Foreign Ministry said.

Ibrahim “will remain in Italy for a short time and then will travel on to the United States,” the ministry said.

Ibrahim’s conviction for apostasy and adultery was overturned last month on appeal, following weeks of international controversy.

She her husband, American Daniel Wani, were subsequently detained for two days after going to the airport in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, accused of falsifying travel documents. They were trying to fly to the United States with their baby daughter, who was born while Ibrahim was in prison, and toddler son.
