Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese doctor who is facing execution for marrying a Christian, has given birth to a baby girl in prison.
Her daughter was delivered in the hospital wing of the Omdurman Federal Women’s prison in North Khartoum yesterday, where the 27-year-old has been held since a judge sentenced her to death for ‘abandoning’ her Islamic faith.
Her lawyer Mohaned Mustafa Elnour told the MailOnline: ‘This is some good news in what has been a terrible ordeal for Meriam.
‘I am planning to visit her with her husband Daniel later today. I think they are going to call the baby Maya.’
Meriam’s case has caused outrage around the world, after the pregnant mother-of-one was arrested and sentenced to 100 lashes and death by hanging earlier in the month.
