US: Sudan has not re-arrested freed Christian woman

WASHINGTON: The United States said Monday that it had received assurances a Sudanese Christian woman has not, as reported, been re-arrested, one day after a court annulled her death sentence for apostasy. 

State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said Washington has been informed by Sudan that "the family was temporarily detained at the airport for several hours by the government for questioning about issues related to their travel and, I think, travel documents. They have not been arrested."
