Ibrahim-Wani-family

Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who was spared a death sentence for renouncing Islam has flown to Italy after more than a month in the US embassy in the capital of Sudan, Khartoum.
She and her family flew on an Italian government plane, accompanied by Italian minister Lapo Pistelli.
Evidence of the trip was made via Facebook when Pistelli, Italy’s vice-minister for foreign affairs, posted a photo of himself with Ibrahim and her children on his account as they were about to land in Rome.
Her husband, Daniel Wani, a Christian, is from South Sudan and has US nationality.
Their daughter Maya was born in prison in May, shortly after Ibrahim was sentenced to hang for apostasy – renouncing one’s faith – sparking global outrage.
Under intense international pressure, her conviction was quashed and she was freed in June.
She was given South Sudanese travel documents but was arrested at Khartoum airport, accused of using fake identity papers.
