Look as if we have Italy to thank for this although there isn't much detail. BUT on the World at One it said that she was flown out of the Sudan on an Italian plane with Italian officials. She looks fantastic, it's knocked years off her already.

Baldric I can't read your Telegraph article as I need to subscribe to do so.
Fantastic news.

I've just read the Telegraph article and I don't subscribe.
Brave lady. :)
A bit of good news in an otherwise gloomy week.
Good for her, glad she and family free at last.

rocky I think what's happened with me is that I've used up my free reads with the Telegraph. I reckon you're only allowed so many a month before you have to subscribe. It has happened to me before now I think about it. You must be inside your limit.
Anyway, as other have said, a bit of good news in a sea of bad. I hope her and her family go on to have a good life in America.
//A Sudanese woman who fled to Italy after being spared a death sentence for renouncing Islam has met the Pope//

Out of the frying pan.............
You're comparing Catholicism with Islam?

ZM There was me thinking this was a happy story. She chooses Catholicism.
That's wonderful news! Let's hope, however much she loves her country, she's never tempted to return to Sudan.

The whole thing was a farce. She didn't renounce her faith. She was never Muslim. She was raised a Christian so it's likely she's always been Roman Catholic.
her father was muslim, her mother orthodox. her father left the family and she was raised in her mother's faith; whereas, Sudanese law held that she was born of her father's faith and thus, as a then Christian, was guilty of apostasy.
That is good news, I hope she can now live a normal life.
who really cares what religion she claims to be..she is now free from a ridiculous persecution...
//Sudanese law held that she was born of her father's faith and thus, as a then Christian, was guilty of apostasy. //

True - and that illustrates perfectly the injustice within the rule of Islam. She was never a Muslim.
That's extremely good news as it has been such a harrowing story and as boxtops said lets hope she and her family can live in peace now. x
