The Sudanese woman who has been sentenced to hang for refusing to renounce Christianity has given birth to a baby girl, her lawyers told The Telegraph.
Meriam Ibrahim, 27, gave birth to the girl – her second child – in the early hours of Tuesday morning, in the hospital wing of the prison.
Her son, 20-month-old Martin, has been with her inside the cell since she was first charged in February. Ms Ibrahim’s husband, Daniel Wani, who is in a wheelchair, said last week that she was being kept shackled by the ankles in her cell.
She was sentenced to death on May 15 by a court in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.
