Sudan re-arrests death row woman
Authorities re-arrested Mariam Yahya Ibrahim on Tuesday just hours after she was freed.
CAIRO - Sudanese authorities re-arrested a Sudanese woman on Tuesday hours after she was freed from death row, and detained her husband and two children as the family tried to board a plane in Khartoum, a security source said.
Mariam Yahya Ibrahim was sentenced to death last month for converting to Christianity from Islam and was initially released on Monday after what the government said was "unprecedented" international pressure.
The official did not comment on the reasons for Tuesday's re-arrest.
