Refugee Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun arrives in Canada

Refugee Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun arrives in Canada

Associated Press
18-year old citizen of Saudi Arabia named Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun, who escaped from her family, fearing execution for renouncing Islam, arrived in Canada, reports AP.  
‘Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun smiled broadly as she exited an arrival door at Toronto’s airport Saturday sporting a Canada zipper hoodie after a dramatic week that saw her flee her family while visiting Kuwait and before flying to Bangkok, where she barricaded herself in an airport hotel to avoid deportation,’ reads the message.  

Minister of Foreign Affairs of Canada Chrystia Freeland met the girl at the airport.  
Canadian authorities granted asylum to Alqunun. She asked the U.S. and Australia for asylum as well.  
18-year old Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun became known after she told her story. She faces prison, and death after it because she declined Islam. Even if she is not sentenced to capital punishment, her relatives who have not accepted the rejection of Islam will kill her.
