Young Saudi asylum-seeker arrives in Canada to official welcomeA “very, very happy” young Saudi woman who caused a sensation by defying her family and seeking asylum abroad was welcomed with open arms in Toronto Saturday at the end of a dramatic but exhausting international odyssey. Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland greeted Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun after she landed in Toronto, wearing a gray hoodie emblazoned in red with the word “CANADA” and a blue cap with the logo of the UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR). Smiling broadly, the 18-year-old posed for photographers with Freeland at her side, but made no statement.
