(Newser) – The Sudanese woman whose death sentence for refusing to renounce her Christianity was overturned has been freed again after being detained on accusations of forging travel documents. Eman Abdul-Rahman, the lawyer for 27-year-old Meriam Ibrahim, told the AP that she was released today from a police station after foreign diplomats pressed the government to free her. She was detained Tuesday at Khartoum's airport while trying to leave the country with her family.
