The Saudi woman who fled her home last year to marry her lover in Yemen finally fulfilled her dream in a remote area outside the Yemeni capital last week.

A government official at the ministry of human rights who visited the couple told Gulf News that a local tribe assisted the lovers in their efforts to tie the knot on November 7 and provided them with accommodation and money.

Abdul Salam Al Nawab, the head of the ministry’s refugee department, said the tribesmen are keeping the honeymooners in an undisclosed location, adding that he was blindfolded when he visited the couple in their new house.

A year ago, the Saudi woman Huda Al Jiran, fell in love with Yemeni mobile phone seller, Arafat, in her home city Jizan.
