Asylum assessment of Saudi teenager in Thailand to take days
He said the Saudi Embassy has no authority to stop anyone at the airport and that such a decision would rest with Thai officials. For runaway Saudi women, fleeing can be a matter of life and death, and they are nearly always trying to escape male relatives.

Apparently, there will be a more powerful Redmi Note 7 Pro version, but it is still not clear what specifications will change. The Redmi Note 7 comes with two cameras on the back which are placed in a vertical fashion.

The Redmi Note 7 starts at CNY999 for the 3GB RAM with 32GB storage variant, but can go up to CNY1,399 for the model with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. A device which could be the Redmi Note 7 also surfaced on TENAA recently, which means it got certified in China, and even though that was not a full-fledged listing, we did get some info out of it. Connectivity options include USBType-Cport, 3.5mm headphone jack, VoLTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Global Positioning System.

6GB RAM and 64GB storage will be the highest variant, whose cost is Yuan 1399, or Rs 14,000 approximately. As always, Xiaomi will bring the Redmi Note 7 to other markets soon after it launches in China. At the same event, Xiaomi announced that it's spinning Redmi into a separate brand and appointed former Gionee employee- William Lu as the vice president of new sub-brand. Depending on the variant you choose, the phone is available in four colors: Blue, red, black and a purplish "twilight" gradient.
