The United Nation’s refugee agency has declared the teenager is a legitimate refugee. Canada open to receiving Saudi woman fleeing family, officials confirm.

 

Canadian authorities, in behind-the-scenes conversations, have indicated they would be open to taking in Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, who fled her family and renounced Islam, which is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia. After the 18-year-old refused to board a flight from the Thai capital to Kuwait on Monday, she barricaded herself inside an airport hotel room.

In these part of the world they chose a harsh religion that reflects their culture and their feeble mentality!

It is wonderful to see a young girl using her logic mind. relaxed

At this moment in time, she doesn't realise that she will never be meeting her parents and  relatives ever again, and that is very sad, but of course I also realise that she would have been killed knowing that she refuses to follow her religion!
