Saudi teen bound for Canada

Saudi teenager Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, who was detained at a Bangkok airport while fleeing her family, has left Thailand on a flight bound for Canada. The UNHCR withdrew its refugee referral to Australia after the 18-year-old expressed a preference for Canada. Ms al-Qunun flew to Thailand from Kuwait and refused to return saying she feared her family would kill her after she renounced Islam. The woman posted videos about her ordeal on Twitter sparking global interest in her plight. Her Twitter page has since been deleted.
