Saudi recalls it’s envoy to Sri Lanka


Saudi Arabia has reportedly recalled it’s Ambassador to Sri Lanka over the controversy which arose following the execution of Sri Lankan maid Rizana Nafeek.

Ambassador Abdul Azeez Al Jammaz has reportedly been recalled after the Sri Lankan government recalled it’s Ambassador to the Saudi Kingdom as a mark of protest over Nafeek’s execution.

Nafeek was executed by the Saudi authorities last month over allegations she killed a baby in her care.

The execution drew wide condemnation in Sri Lanka and around the world.
