United Nations officials have taken charge of Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun, a Saudi teenager who defied deportation from Thailand. The 18-year-old says she's fleeing abuse and had barricaded herself in a Bangkok hotel room to avoid being returned to her family. She was later escorted out of the airport by UNHCR employees.

Long live Saudia ❤️. Saudi women enjoy equal rights as Saudi male. They have right to work. They have right to take decision in their life. They enjoy each and every right . Media is just trying to defame the kingdom and nothing else. That's the cheapest way of getting fame as done by her. She can fight her case in the kingdom. Long live Saudia ❤️

To be honest to say, Saudia Arabia is main supplier of Oil to the world.
That's why they are attacking to Saudi Arabia through Media. Actually Europeans or others don't care these people, all is happening because of oil, trying to decrease the price.

Women are treated like animals in Arab countries especially SOUDIA , we people of civilized world should help these poor women , but we have very selfish mean leaders who only thinks about their business interests or business contracts, why don’t we push SOUDIA government to give equal rights to women, and its minorities , where the he’ll is our democratic values, and where the he’ll is our intellectual honesty .

Why not help millions of Palestinians being massacred by Israel? Because they cannot make Islam and Muslims look bad then, only Israel would look bad... all fake drama.
Rick Shawn
Hypocrite West, this is just to show the Saudis in a negative light, why not give assylum to Rohingiya Muslims being massacred by the Burmese Buddhists? Because who cares, they are poor right? No one is falling for this scam.
Shame to Arab rulars. Well done girl
