Meriam Ibrahim detained trying to leave Sudan

 UPDATE (10 a.m. EDT, June 24): Meriam Ibrahim, her husband, and their two children have been detained by Sudanese security forces while trying to leave the country, her lawyer said early Tuesday.

Ibrahim, who was freed from prison on Monday, had been sentenced to die for refusing to recant her Christian faith. A judge commuted her sentence after an international outcry. Her lawyer, Eman Abdul-Rahim, said the family was trying to get on a plane bound for the United States when they were detained at the international airport in Khartoum. Daniel Wani, Ibrahim’s husband, is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
