Saudi Arabia suspends educational exchange programmes with Canada - Al Arabiya TV

DUBAI (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia is suspending educational exchange programmes with Canada and moving Saudi scholarship recipients there to other countries, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya reported on Monday.

The kingdom froze new trade and investment with Canada after Ottawa urged Riyadh to free arrested rights activists. It also recalled its ambassador and gave the Canadian ambassador 24 hours to leave the country.
