image for Woman arrested in Sudan for having the letter M in name
Ms Watts has also been charged for being a woman

A British woman living in Sudan has been arrested and charged with blasphemy and insulting Islam for having the letter M in her name, which also belongs in the name of Prophet Muhammad.

Amanda Watts was arrested and charged in the early hours of the morning by Sudanese police and is currently being held in a maximum security prison, awaiting her sentence.

The government of Sudan said Ms Watts knowingly and wilfully broke the law and insulted the religion by having a name that contains a letter which forms the start of the prophet's name.

The British government has refused to intervene in the matter, saying it hasn't been told by the Bush administration to do anything about it, and will not do so until such time.

Protestors in Sudan have burnt effigies and vowed to go after anyone else who has the letter M in their name. An extremist group has also vowed to attack anyone who has the letters U, H, A and D in their names.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
