With phone and hashtag, Saudi asylum seeker outflanks Thai authorities
When an 18-year-old Saudi asylum seeker arrived in Bangkok she faced immediate deportation -- but instead she is in the hands of the UN refugee agency, her social media savvy galvanising a global campaign that caught the Thai government flat-footed. Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun fled the ultra-conservative Saudi kingdom after she was allegedly subjected to physical and psychological abuse by her family. In one of her first tweets from @rahaf84427714 she said she was in 'real danger' if sent back to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi teen's asylum case being judged at lightning speed
Australian authorities are weighing a young Saudi woman's asylum claim at unusual speed, several lawyers and legal experts have told AFP, contrasting her high-profile plight with a normally excruciatingly slow system. Canberra has insisted it will treat the case of 18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun 'in the usual way, as it does with all' refugee cases referred by the United Nations. 'Usually it's really very slow,' said Mary Anne Kenny, a veteran legal practitioner and expert in Australian migration at Perth's Murdoch University.

Saudis blast 'guardianship' laws after woman's escape
A Saudi teen's live-tweeted asylum plea has cast a renewed spotlight on women's rights just months after women won the right to drive, and sparked rare criticism of restrictive 'guardianship' laws -- from men. Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, arrived in Thailand at the weekend after fleeing what she called an abusive family in the deeply conservative kingdom and staved off deportation after her tweets drew global attention. Qunun's impassioned cry for help set off a media frenzy, prompting angry denunciations and death threats from many in a kingdom where guardianship laws are still widely supported.

Saudi woman 'under the care' of UN agency: Thai official
The Saudi woman who made a desperate plea for asylum after landing at Bangkok airport has been placed 'under the care' of the United Nations refugee agency, a Thai official said late Monday. Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun told AFP she ran away from her family while travelling in Kuwait because they subjected her to physical and psychological abuse. The 18-year-old said she had planned to seek asylum in Australia and feared she would be killed if repatriated by Thai immigration officials who stopped her during transit on Sunday.
