British Teacher Pardoned By Sudan President

A British teacher who was jailed in Sudan after she allowed her students to name a teddy bear ''Muhammad'' is on her way home.
   A spokesman for the British Embassy in Khartoum (kar-TOOM') says he can confirm that Gillian Gibbons left Sudan after her pardon by the country's president.
   She had initially been sentenced to 15 days in jail and deportation for insulting Islam.
   Gibbons is believed to be on an Emirates flight with a stopover in Dubai before heading to London.
