Sudan releases woman jailed in trouser case
A Sudanese woman jailed for wearing trousers deemed indecent in a court case was freed on Tuesday after the country's journalist union paid a court-imposed $209 fine, the head of the media body said.

Lubna Hussein was convicted on indecency charges on Monday in a case, and was ordered to pay a fine or face a month in jail, but was spared a penalty of 40 lashes.
