"No special treatment" says Australia but plans to work with UN in al-Qunun case

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION Australia's Home Affairs Minister, Peter Dutton said on Wednesday (January 9) there would be no special treatment afforded to Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun but said Australia would work with the United Nations.

The U.N.

Refugee agency on Tuesday (January 8) said it was investigating the case of the 18-year-old Saudi woman who fled to Thailand saying she feared her family would kill her and barricaded herself in a Bangkok airport hotel room to avoid being sent back.

Qunun said she had obtained an Australian visa and booked a flight.

She said she had planned to spend a few days in Thailand so she would not spark suspicion when she left Kuwait.

Within hours of Qunun posting a tweet, a campaign sprung up on Twitter dubbed #SaveRahaf.

Spread by a loose network of activists around the world, within 36 hours it prompted Thailand's government to reverse a decision to force the young woman onto a plane that would return her to her family.
