Meriam Yahia Ibrahim IS Free!
A Sudanese woman who was spared a death sentence for renouncing Islam has flown to Italy after more than a month in the US embassy in Khartoum.Sudan's version of Islam? How about THE version of Islam?
Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag and her family were met in Rome by Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, who said: "Today is a day of celebration."
There was global condemnation when she was sentenced to hang for apostasy.
Her father is Muslim so according to Sudan's version of Islamic law she is also Muslim and cannot convert.
Anyway thanks to the Italians and we hope to welcome her home soon.
