(CNSNEWS) — The State Department conceded Monday that Daniel Wani—the husband of Meriam Ibrahim, the woman sentenced to death in Sudan for refusing to renounce her Christian faith—is a U.S. citizen.

However, the State Department would not say whether Wani and Ibrahim’s 1-week-old daughter and 20-month old son–who are now in jail with their mother–are the children of a U.S. citizen.

“We do have a Privacy Act waiver for Mr. Wani at this time, who I can confirm is a U.S. citizen, as has been reported,” State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki said at Monday’s press briefing.
