sudan womanMeriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman released from prison on Monday after worldwide protests at her death sentence for apostasy, has been rearrested at Khartoum airport, sources said.

The 27-year-old was arrested along with her American husband, Daniel Wani, it was reported. The BBC said the whole family had been detained but other reports said the status of the couple’s two young children – one a month-old baby – was not known.
