Merian IbrahimA Christian woman on death row in a Sudanese prison has been released on the orders of a court in Khartoum after her case became the focus of an international campaign.

Meriam Ibrahim was sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery and to be hanged for apostasy after refusing to renounce her faith last month.

The Sudanese state news agency Suna said: "The appeal court ordered the release of [Ibrahim] and the cancellation of the [earlier] court ruling."

However, there was no sign of Ibrahim, her husband Daniel Wani or their two children at the couple's home in Khartoum.

Mohaned Mostafa, a member of Ibrahim's legal team, said she had been moved to a safehouse "for her protection and security". He told Reuters: "Her family had been threatened before and we are worried that someone might try to harm her."
