Thailand says it WON’T send Saudi teenager, 18, back to her home country after she barricaded herself in Bangkok hotel room to avoid being returned to family she says will KILL her

Thailand has said it will not send a Saudi teenager back to her homeland after she barricaded herself in a Bangkok hotel room to avoid being returned to family she fears will kill her.

Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, ran away from her family while they were on a trip to Kuwait three days ago and had flown to Thailand in the hope of reaching Australia to seek asylum.

But she has been at Bangkok airport since Saturday when she was denied entry by Thai immigration officials.
