KHASHOGGI: Saudi detains 18 people, dismisses 5 senior govt officials

Authorities in Germany have banned 18 Saudi Arabia nationals who are believed to be linked with the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi from entering Europe’s border-free Schengen zone.

The ban was announced by Germany’s foreign minister Heiko Maas who told reporters in Brussels on Monday that Germany issued the ban for the 26-nation zone in close coordination with France, which is part of the Schengen area, and Britain, which is not.

He says “as before, there are more questions than answers in this case, with the crime itself and who is behind it”.

Maas says the 18 are Saudis who are “allegedly connected to this crime” but gave no further information.

The ban is coming hours after the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, said that a full report on the murder of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi will be out in two days.

Trump who revealed that much information in Washington also added that, the report will include information on, “who did it.”
