(London Daily Mail) A Sudanese woman facing down a death sentence for marrying a Christian will be freed, officials in the country have said.

The news comes after huge international pressure was piled on the Sudanese authorities, with David Cameron, Hillary Clinton and the Archbishop of Canterbury all calling for the sentence to be dropped.
