According to BBC, a foreign ministry official said that Sudanese authorities are to free her for having abandoned the Islamic faith. Lifenews stated that Meriam Ibrahim will appeal to the International Court for their client's execution.

The Week stated that Sudan denies retracting death sentence and the announcement was made 'out of context.'However, Guardianlv.com stated Ibrahim will be executed after she has weaned Maya. Even though there is no actual date set, Ibrahim's execution is expected in the next two years.

27-year old Meriam Ibrahim has been sentenced to hang, because she has refused to renounce her Christianity and convert to Islam and for marrying a Christian man, a U.S. citizen named Daniel Wani. She will receive 100 lashes before she is executed, the Daily Mail reported.
