Fleeing Saudi teen on way to Canada for asylum

A Saudi woman who fled her family and became stranded at Bangkok’s main airport is now flying to Canada to seek asylum, according to Thai officials. Rahaf Mohammed al Qunun, 18, had been trying to reach Australia via Bangkok, but was initially told to return to Kuwait, where her family were waiting. She refused to fly back and barricaded herself into her airport hotel room, attracting international attention. The UN’s refugee agency has said it considers her to be a legitimate refugee. page 7
