Sources close to the case said Sudanese authorities and U.S. officials in Khartoum are negotiating to allow a Sudanese woman, who married an American and was recently spared the death penalty for converting to Christianity, to leave Sudan. Mariam Ibrahim’s attorney explains her charges: Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, was detained at Khartoum airport on Tuesday, one day after an appeals court overturned a death sentence imposed on her–for having converted from Islam to Christianity, in order to marry her Christian American husband. Ibrahim deniee those charges, saying she was raised as a Christian and never converted. Ibrahim was detained for trying to use documents issued by the embassy of South Sudan to fly out of Khartoum, with her American-South Sudanese husband and their two children.
