Saudi Arabia suspends Toronto flights in row with CanadaND


BBC News, Tuesday 7 August 2018

Saudi Arabia’s state airliner has suspended its direct flights to Toronto following Canada’s call for the release of detained activists for women’s rights and civil society. It has also frozen all trade and expelled Canada’s ambassador over what it calls “interference”. Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said she was “deeply concerned” by the diplomat’s expulsion, but added that “Canada will always stand up for the protection of human rights, including women’s rights and freedom of expression around the world.” In what appeared to be a further sign of deteriorating Canada-Saudi relations, a verified Twitter account with reported links to Saudi authorities shared an image of a plane flying towards Toronto’s famous CN Tower. The image was overlaid with text, including a quote which read “he who with what doesn’t concern him finds what doesn’t please him.”
