A SAUDI woman has been detained in Bangkok, Thailand after fleeing her family to seek refuge abroad, insisting her relatives will kill her if she returns.

Rahaf Mohammed al-Qunun, 18, is being held in Bangkok by Saudi officials after running away from her abusive family. Ms Qunun, who denounced her faith in Islam, escaped from her family while on a trip in Kuwait two days ago. The teenager's relative reported her travelling without a male guardian, and she is now being held in the Miracle Transit Hotel at Bangkok's airport, after Saudi officials took her passport away. Writing on Twitter, Ms Qunun said: "My family is strict and locked me in a room for six months just for cutting my hair.
