Rahaf Alqunun arrives in Canada after she’s granted asylum

An 18-year-old Saudi woman who said she feared death if deported back home has arrived in Canada, which has granted her asylum.

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland says that Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun is now in Canada.

Standing with Alqunun by her side at Toronto’s airport Saturday, Freeland said: “This a very brave new Canadian.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau had said Canada would accept Alqunun as a refugee, capping a dramatic week that saw her flee her family while visiting Kuwait and before flying to Bangkok, where she barricaded herself in an airport hotel to avoid deportation. The case grabbed global attention after she mounted a social media campaign for asylum.
