BREAKING: A Sudanese court has sentenced a woman to hang for apostasy after she converted from Islam to Christianity #Sudan
Meriam Ibrahim, 26, was convicted of apostasy at the weekend and given four days to switch back to Islam and thus avoid execution.
The woman is pregnant and married a Christian man from the south of the country in 2011 and took his faith. She has an 18-month-old child with her inside the jail, officials also say.
Ms Ibrahim was sentenced to death after that grace period expired, Amnesty said.

The court in the capital, Khartoum, also ordered that she be given 100 lashes for committing "zena" - an Arabic word for illegitimate sex - for having sexual relations with her husband.
