Christian Mother Sentenced to Death in Sudan Expected in New Hampshire This Week
Some time this week, 27-year-old Meriam Ibrahim is expected to arrive among relatives in Manchester, New Hampshire.
She made international news for being sentenced to death in Sudan for her Christian faith, but she was able to get to Rome on July 24 and will be in Manchester soon.
According to the Washington Examiner, "she and her family fled Sudan following the overturning of her conviction in late June." However, she was arrested again for allegedly "falsifying travel documents" as she and her family tried to get to the United States.
CNN reports that she and her family were then "confined to a safe house in Sudan" until they were able to flee to Italy.
Once in Italy, Meriam's husband Daniel called relatives in New Hampshire to say they were coming home.
Meriam was originally detained in mid-January. Upon receiving her death sentence she told the court, "I am a Christian, and I will remain a Christian."
