Australian foreign minister in Thailand as Saudi teen seeks asylum

BANGKOK – Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne was in Bangkok on Thursday (Jan 10) after Canberra said it would consider giving asylum to an 18-year-old Saudi teenager who fled to Thailand, saying she feared her family, which she accused of abuse, would kill her.

Payne is also expected to discuss the case of a Bahraini footballer with Australian asylum status who has been jailed in Thailand and faces extradition back to Bahrain.
