Young Saudi asylum-seeker arrives in Canada to official welcome

A young Saudi woman who caused an international sensation as she sought asylum abroad arrived in Toronto on Saturday where she was welcomed with open arms.

Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland greeted Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, after she landed in Toronto, wearing a blue ball cap and a gray hoodie emblazoned in red with the word “CANADA.”

She posed for photographers with Freeland at her side, but made no statement.

“She had a pretty long journey and is exhausted and prefers not to take questions for the moment,” Freeland said.
