Abdul Rahman Update

This is certainly good news for Abdul Rahman:

An Afghan Christian facing possible execution for converting from Islam was likely to be released from jail "soon," a senior government official said following huge Western pressure over the case.

"He is likely to be released soon," the official said, adding there would be a top-level meeting on the matter Saturday.

There was a rally in D.C. today calling for the relese fo Rahman, with a very impressive turnout.

Details about the rally (including pictures) and Rahman's case here and here.
