BBC reports that Gillian Gibbons will be freed today:

Sudan’s President Omar al-Bashir pardoned her after a meeting with two British Muslim peers.

In a statement, Mrs Gibbons said: “I am sorry if I caused any distress.” UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said he was “delighted and relieved” at the news.

Mrs Gibbons is expected to be released into the care of the British embassy in Khartoum later on Monday and flown back to the UK.
