Meriam Ibrahim Rearrested At Airport

Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim, who had been released from prison less than 24 hours earlier, after facing a charge of apostasy by leaving Islam (which she has never practiced), has been re-arrested with her family at the Khartoum airport.  According to their lawyer, no reason was given for their detention.

Read the story at The Telegraph, BBC World, The Christian Post and CNN.

UPDATE:  The BBC article is now saying that Ibrahim and her family have been released again.
