Good news from Sudan:

A Sudanese woman facing down a death sentence for marrying a Christian will be freed, it has been reported.

Meriam Ibrahim, who gave birth in prison this week, was sentenced to death for abandoning Islam, but is now set to be released in a matter of days.

The news comes after huge international pressure was piled on the Sudanese authorities, with David Cameron, Hillary Clinton and the Archbishop of Canterbury all calling for the sentence to be dropped.

Abdullahi Alazreg, an under-secretary at the foreign ministry, announced the decision to the BBC, saying that Sudan guaranteed religious freedom and was committed to protecting the woman.

Guaranteed religious freedom only if pressured.

Let's also hope the U.S. allows this family to come to America, even though this Administration tends to turn a blind eye on persecuted Christians.

1 Why are all answers "come to America". I wish these people luck in life but don't we have enough problems with black immigrants (in fact many immigrants) already. Particularly with those that can't speak English and brings nothing to the table except a child for us to feed and care for?
Cruel huh? Sometimes reality be that way.
