Eighteen-year-old Rehaf Alqunun, who fled from her family over fears for her life, has arrived in Canada.
Alqunun flew from Thailand to Toronto via Seoul after Canada agreed to give her asylum, following intervention from the United Nations, after she barricaded herself in a hotel room at Bangkok Airport to avoid deportation, and took to Twitter seeking help and protection.
Al Jazeera’s Mike Hanna reports from Toronto.
