Woman sentenced to death for allegedly abandoning the Muslim faith has been detained by security services, just a day after she was released from prison
(SOURCE) Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman released from prison on Monday after worldwide protests at her death sentence for apostasy, has been arrested at Khartoum airport – after less than 24 hours of freedom.
The 27-year-old was arrested along with her American husband, Daniel Wani, and their two children, Martin, almost two, and Maya, two weeks old. The BBC said the whole family had been detained but other reports said the status of the children was not known.
Their lawyer, Elshareef Ali Mohammed, was with them at the time, and said they were given no reason for their detention. The arrest comes just hours after photos emerged of Ms Ibrahim smiling as she was reunited with her family.
“The National Security took her and Daniel,” a source told AFP.
The couple were detained at about midday UK time as they tried to leave the country, said the source. He said they were taken to a facility of the powerful National Intelligence and Security Service (NISS).
