Earlier Friday, Thailand’s immigration police chief said 18-year-old Rahaf Mohammed Alqunun had left on a flight headed for Canada. Alqunun was stopped last Saturday at a Bangkok airport by immigration police who denied her entry and seized her passport. While barricading herself in an airport hotel room, the 18-year-old launched a social media campaign via her Twitter account that drew global attention to her case. It garnered enough public and diplomatic support to convince Thai officials to admit her temporarily under the protection of U.N. officials.
