At the BBC:
A British teacher who was jailed in Sudan for letting her class name a teddy bear Muhammad has begun her journey home after being freed.
Gillian Gibbons, 54, from Liverpool, was described as “elated” by UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband as her eight days in custody ended.
She was sentenced to 15 days jail, but pardoned by President Omar al-Bashir.
She is flying back to the UK via Dubai, and is expected to land in the UK on Tuesday morning.
She was a distraction.

Don’t let the teddy bear b*tch see the light of day
