STRASBOURG/PARIS (Reuters) - The European Court of Human Rights upheld France's 2010 ban on full-face veils in public on Tuesday but acknowledged the law could appear excessive and feed stereotypes.

Judges at the Strasbourg-based court, by 15 to 2, said the ban did not violate religious freedom and aimed to ensure "respect for the minimum set of values of an open democratic society" which included openness to social interaction.

Sudan: Meriam Ibrahim released from death row

The Sudanese State News Agency, Suna, is reporting that Meriam Ibrahim has been released and the charges overturned.

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

She has been moved to a safe house, according to Mohaned Mostafa, a member of her legal team. He told Reuters: "Her family had been threatened before and we are worried that someone might try to harm her."

Sentenced to death

Meriam Yahia Ibrahim was sentenced to death in Khartoum on 11 May for 'apostasy' (converting to Christianity) as well as up to 100 lashes for committing adultery. She refused to renounce her Christian faith. According to reports, the judge told her: "We gave you three days to recant but you insist on not returning to Islam. I sentence you to be hanged to death." Meriam calmly replied, "I am a Christian and I never committed apostasy."

CHRISTIAN CHARGED WITH “BLASPHEMY” IN EGYPT

A young Christian man has been charged under Egypt’s “blasphemy” law for “liking” a Facebook page that local Muslims deemed offensive to Islam. The case prompted attacks by Islamists on Christian property.

Kerolos Shouky Attallah (29) of El-Mahameed village near Luxor is scheduled to appear in court on 24 June on a charge of showing disdain or contempt for a heavenly religion, which carries a penalty of between six months and five years in prison, or a fine.

Kerolos was accused after clicking the “like” button on a Facebook page run by a group of converts from Islam to Christianity, the Knights of the Cross. The page features posts about Christian and Islamic teachings, and is intended to encourage Arabic-speaking converts from Islam in their faith. Kerolos did not add any content to the page or interact with posts by others.
