Saudi woman held at Bangkok airport says fears death if repatriated


BANGKOK (The Nation/Asia News Network): A Saudi woman held at Bangkok airport said she would be killed if she was repatriated by Thai immigration officials, who confirmed the 18-year-old was denied entry to the country Sunday.

Rahaf Mohammed M Alqunun told AFP she was stopped by Saudi and Kuwaiti officials when she arrived in Suvarnabhumi airport and her travel document was forcibly taken from her, a claim backed by Human Rights Watch."They took my passport," she told AFP, adding that her male guardian had reported her for traveling "without his permission".
