Sudan Summons US Ambassadors over Christian Woman

Sudan summoned the ambassadors of America and South Sudan on Wednesday, over what it termed the "criminal" issuance of travel documents by the two governments to a Sudanese Christian woman who had been sentenced to death for "apostasy."

Meriam Ibrahim (27) was re-arrested with her husband Daniel Wani and two children at the Khartoum airport on Tuesday, after having been cleared of a death sentence on Monday for marrying a Christian. Ibrahim herself, though the daughter of a Muslim man, was raised by her Christian mother.
