Woman Convicted of Apostasy Leaves Sudan


A woman who was spared a death sentence for converting from Islam to Christianity, and then barred from leaving the country, has been flown to Italy.


Italian vice-minister of foreign affairs Lapo Pistelli has posted a photo of himself with Meriam Ibrahim and her children. Ibrahim had been arrested for converting from Islam before marrying her husband. The photo was taken a few minutes before they arrived in Rome from Sudan.
