Así lo publica AL Jazeera:

Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese president, has pardoned a British teacher jailed for 15 days for insulting religion, according to a presidential adviser.

Mahjoub Fadl Badri said Gillian Gibbons, who was convicted for allowing her students to name a toy bear Mohammed, was set to be freed later on Monday.

The pardon came after al-Bashir met two leading British Muslim politicians, Lord Nazir Ahmed and Baroness Sayeeda Warsi, in Khartoum earlier on Monday.

La pregunta que es cuál ha sido el precio.

(+) Ya ha dejado Sudán:

British teacher jailed for insulting Islam after allowing her students to name a teddy bear Muhammad flew home Monday following a pardon by the president of Sudan, a British Embassy spokesman said.

Gillian Gibbons was believed to be on an Emirates flight with a stopover in Dubai before heading to London.

Embassy spokesman Omar Daair told The Associated Press that Gibbons has left Sudan.
