'Meriam Ibrahim Should be Executed!' - Brother of Sudanese Woman Sentenced to Death Says

The brother of the Sudanese Christian woman, Meriam Ibrahim who was sentenced to death for apostasy, in a new interview with CNN says his sister was “given a magic potion” to bewitch her into leaving Islam – and should be executed for doing so.

Al Samani Al Hadi Mohamed Abdullah had handed his sister to the authorities because, according to him, his family are “Muslim people.” He claimed that Ms Ibrahim, 27, was born as Abrar Al Hadi but changed her name when she was drugged by her husband, Daniel Wani. And if she did not return to the devout family fold, she should be hanged.
“It’s one of two; if she repents and returns to our Islamic faith and to the embrace of our family, then we are her family and she is ours. But if she refuses she should be executed.
