Rahaf Alqunun is Now Safe with UN

Rahaf al-Qunun, Khaosod English reports, is now safe with the help of the UN, after UN representatives were allowed to meet with her in the late afternoon.

After negotiations with the Thai authorities, the Immigration Bureau has allowed her to leave the airport and stay in accommodation under the protection of the UN.

The immigration head, Lt. Gen. Surachate 'Big Joke' Hakparn, said it will take 5 days for UNHCR to find a country to accept her.

“She has left the airport with the UN,”  Surachate told Khaosod. “She’s not being held by the immigration any longer.”
