Samantha Orobator freed from Laos

In May, we posted about 20 year old Samantha Orobator, a pregnant British woman who was jailed in Laos on drug charges – and originally sentenced to death by firing squad. (She became pregnant while in jail; her mother feared that she was raped while in prison – Orobator says she was not.)
CNN reports that Orobator will be freed to today and go to Britain to receive a sentence there.
