Thai authorities arrested Hakeem al Araibi in Bangkok last month because of an Interpol red notice. The 25-year-old professional soccer player is a refugee who was granted asylum in Australia, after he spoke out against Bahrain's powerful ruling family. The World’s Patrick Winn tells host Carol Hills that Araibi remains detained in Thailand and it’s unclear whether he will be sent back to Bahrain, or to Australia.
