Thailand has said it will not send a Saudi teenager back to her homeland after she barricaded herself in a Bangkok hotel room to avoid being returned to family she fears will kill her.
Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, ran away from her family while they were on a trip to Kuwait three days ago and had flown to Thailand in the hope of reaching Australia to seek asylum.
But she has been at Bangkok airport since Saturday when she was denied entry by Thai immigration officials.
They deny her claims that she was detained at the behest of the Saudi government and this morning halted plans to expel her, insisting she would not be forcibly deported 'if she does not want to leave'.
Thailand's Immigration Police chief Major General Surachate Hakparn also said she will be allowed to meet UN refugee officials.
The teenager was due to have been marched onto a flight back to Kuwait this morning - but she never boarded the plane and has posted a clip on Twitter of her barricading her hotel door with a table, mattresses and a chair.
This morning, Rahah, who fears retaliation from her family after she renounced Islam, told MailOnline: 'I am okay but I am not sure what my family or the Saudi embassy are going to do. I have to go to another country soon.'

This -of-three has a tumour bigger than a watermelon on her chin which started as a toothache when she was just thirteen.
Belinda Austria, 42, began suffering with pain in her lower jaw when she was a teenager but thought it was just problems with new teeth growing.
She finally went to the doctors when she was 19 after her gums had swollen.
But medics in the Pangasinan region of the Philippines dismissed the growth of an abscess.
Belinda had the ''unbearable'' growth removed in 1997 several months after giving birth to her first child, but several years later and after having her third child, it returned - rapidly growing and the family unable to afford treatment.
The housewife now has to haul the heavy tumour around with her and cover her face with a scarf every time she leaves the home to prevent people from stopping and staring.
Belinda and her husband Carlos, a farm worker, sold their possessions and paid the equivalent of 2,000 USD for the operation in 1997.
Now with the husband earning only around 5USD a day collecting crops, the family are unable to afford to send Belinda for more treatment, and the country's government does not cover medical costs.
Belinda and her children Jonalyn, 22, Joanne, 20 and Julius, 11, are scraping together what they can, but fear that the growth will kill her before they have enough to pay the bill, believed to be at least 3000USD.
