The news was put forward by a senior official of the Sudanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim Ishag, of 27 years, is being held in a prison for women located in the vicinity of Khartoum.

On May 15, a court in Khartoum sentenced her to death, accusing her of having exchanged the Muslim religion by Christianity.

Meriam is married to an American Christian.

The death sentence has provoked a wave of indignation throughout the world pressing the Sudanese Government to retreat.

Britain appealed to Sudan to defend what designated as international obligations relating to freedom of religion.
