Australia to Consider Taking In Saudi Teen Who Fled Family 'Abuse'

According to Reuters, Australia on Wednesday said it would consider taking in a 18-year-old Saudi woman who fled to Thailand saying she feared her family, which she accused of abuse.

Rahaf al-Qunun arrived in Bangkok on Saturday appealing for asylum.

Australia said on Tuesday it would consider resettling her if the U.N.

High Commissioner for Refugees deemed her a refugee.
