A court in Sudan has overturned flogging sentences for nine women accused of taking part in protests against President Omar al-Bashir.
The women were arrested on Thursday, then on Saturday they were sentenced to a month in jail and 20 lashes each.
The appeals court ordered their immediate release, saying they had been in prison long enough.
On Monday, parliament halved a year-long state of emergency imposed by President Bashir.
There have been weeks of protests, originally against the rising cost of living but now also focused on removing the president from power.
