The Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for being a Christian has been released from her latest detention but has been charged with new crimes, MailOnline can reveal. Meriam Ibrahim has been accused of falsifying travel documents as she tried to leave the African country hours after the death penalty was dropped against her. It is understood that the authorities told her she should have used the Muslim name she had when she was born, not the Christian name she uses after choosing to worship that faith.

Do we send the Sudan any foreign aid? It should be stopped immediately…and perhaps we might reinstate some of it when she and her children get to the USA.

Ha... if she had of used her moose limb name, that would have been proof positive that she really was an apostate moose limb... therefore the original sentence to death would have been appropriate. Reminds me of the witch scene from Monty Python The Holy Grail.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yp_l5ntikaU

"Their foreign aid should go to $0.00."

That's right; and I'll bet the next time foreign aid expenditures comes up, they will get an increase.

The more corrupt our gov't becomes the more our gov't props up corrupt governments...IT IS INSANITY!

Ramirez said: ‘The State Department have been so incredibly negligent over this.’

John Effing Kerry and Bonama are too busy providing assistance to the Muslims. Things get a little dicey when you’re playing both sides.

The Sudan Embassy in DC is easy to find. Give them hell until she is home in the US. Jail the whole embassy staff, chain their sorry asses to the concrete floor. It is simple: reciprocate! Return the favor. They must learn that they will NOT win.

Both of HotAir.com's sources indicate she was "temporarily held"...which does not clearly indicate "release".

Sudan summons U.S., South Sudan ambassadors in row over Christian convert

"(Reuters) - The Sudanese Foreign Ministry summoned the American and South Sudanese ambassadors after a Christian-convert woman attempted to travel to the United States using documents issued by the embassy of South Sudan, the state's top security service said on Wednesday.

The move escalated a diplomatic row over Mariam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, who was detained as she and her American husband and two children sought to fly out of Khartoum on Tuesday, a day after she was released from death row.

Ibrahim was freed on Monday by an appeals court which canceled the death sentence imposed on her for having converted to Christianity from Islam, after the government came under what it called unprecedented pressure.

"The airport passport police arrested Abrar after she presented emergency travel documents issued by the South Sudanese embassy and carrying an American visa," Sudan's National Intelligence and Security Services’ media department said on Facebook, referring to Ibrahim by her Muslim name.

"The Sudanese authorities considered (the action) a criminal violation, and the Foreign Ministry summoned the American and South Sudanese ambassadors," it added.

Under Sudan's penal code, forging a document is punishable by up to five years in prison.

Ibrahim's lawyer, Mohaned Mostafa, told Reuters that she is expected to stay in police custody for 24 hours.

Her case triggered an international outcry and was closely monitored by Washington and London, who last month summoned the Sudanese charge d'affaires to protest against Ibrahim's initial death sentence.

Following her brief release on Monday, Ibrahim was sent to a secret location for her protection after her family reported receiving threats, another one of her lawyers had said.

In Washington, the U.S. State Department offered a different version of events on Tuesday, saying the Sudanese government had told the United States that Ibrahim had been detained for several hours and then released but that she had not been arrested.

"The State Department has been informed by the Sudanese government that the family was temporarily detained at the airport for several hours by the government for questioning over issues related to their travel and I think travel documents. They have not been arrested," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters.

"The government has assured us of their safety," Harf added, saying that the U.S. embassy was "highly involved" in working with the family and the government to resolve the matter. "We are engaging directly with Sudanese officials to secure their safe and swift departure from Sudan."

The United States has imposed economic sanctions on Sudan since 1997 over alleged human rights violations. It intensified sanctions in 2006 over Khartoum's actions in its conflict with rebels in the western region of Darfur.

South Sudan, with a majority Christian population, became independent from Sudan after a public vote in 2011 that ended years of civil war between the two states. Islamic laws are applied in Sudan, where most of its people are Sunni Muslims.

The relationship between the two Sudanese neighbors have been relatively calm since South Sudan's secession.

And as rallies are occurring at their embassy they should simultaneously be occurring at their UN mission in New York.I think *those* rallies would attract the attention of foreign press as well as US press.
