“Their mother told detectives the day before the bodies were discovered, she received a call from an official at the Saudi Arabian Embassy, ordering the family to leave the U.S. because her daughters had applied for political asylum, New York police said” apnews.com/094178ff98c34d…
How did the #Saudi embassy know the sisters had applied for aayuum?
Whoever told the #Saudi embassy that Rotana and Tala has applied for asylum jeopardized their lives. There is a reason - a danger they are escaping - that someone applies for asylum. When you tell the embassy of their country of origin, you further endanger them.

The bodies of 2 sisters from #Saudi Arabia were found in Hudson river, bound together by duct tape at their waists & ankles. Rotana Farea, 22, & Tala Farea, 16 “had recently requested asylum in the United States.” nytimes.com/2018/10/29/nyr… h/t @rerutled
👆🏽reminded me of #Saudi woman Dina Lasloom,who tried to escape forced marriage by going to #Australia for asylum but was detained at Manila airport until uncles came,beat her,tied mouth,arms,legs w/duct tape & dragged her onto plane home google.com/amp/s/www.nyti… #GenderApartheid
Death of 2 #Saudi sisters is highly suspicious. I hope coroner’s report is issued soon. I lived in Saudi Arabia as a teenager & for past 16yrs have been writing about #genderaprtheid in Saudi Arabia. Treatment of women is outrageous. And too often ignored or diminished.
