Migration: Saudi Arabian arrived in asylum in Canada

TIME ONLINE | News, backgrounds and debates


Toronto (dpa) - After being deported to their homeland, the Saudi Arabian Rahaf Mohammed el-Kunun, who fled from her family, arrived in Canada. Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland personally picked up the young woman at the Toronto airport. Canada had previously offered asylum to the 18-year-old - which should put additional strain on the already tense relationship between Canada and the UK. El-Kunun was stranded in Bangkok last weekend. She claims to have been mistreated and threatened with death.
