Gillian Gibbons will spend 15 days in the Blasphemers’ Unit in Omdurman Penitentiary, surrounded by some of the country’s most vicious and notorious toy-namers.
Her cell-mates will include Razi Al-Kamari, serving 12 years for suggesting the Prophet Muhammad would have admired the silky, golden hair of her daughter’s Barbie doll.

But most feared is Allana Al-Magri, the Terror of Khartoum, serving three life sentences for telling her seven year-old son that the Prophet Muhammad was ‘basically a Transformer with a beard’.
