thai capital: The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees UNHCR had asked Canada to accept her as a refugee, and Canada has accepted that request and will be granting her asylum, Trudeau confirmed, according to CTV. After the 18-year-old refused officials' attempts to have her board a flight from the Thai capital to Kuwait on Monday, she barricaded herself inside an airport hotel room and took to social media to start a campaign that ended up garnering global attention to her case. Trudeau said that Canadian diplomats in Thailand had been closely engaged in the case of Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, who fled her family and renounced Islam, which is punishable by death in Saudi Arabia. This prompted UN officials to grant her refugee status. Truly I have never dreamed of this love and support. In a tweet Friday night, al-Qunun thanked those who supported and helped her.
