A 27-year-old Sudanese woman facing the death penalty for refusing to abandon Christianity will now be freed, according to multiple reports Sunday.


Mariam Yahya Ibrahim — who gave birth to a girl while in prison — should be free within a few days, Sudanese officials told the BBC.

Ibrahim was also facing 100 lashes for adultery as a result of marrying a Christian man. The sentence was handed down last month by a Sudanese court, which gave Ibrahim an ultimatum: Convert to Islam or hang. Ibrahim told the court, “I am a Christian,” and was subsequently sentenced to die. She was eight months pregnant at the time.
