Saudi Arabia crucifies convicted murderer

Pari Johnston of Universities Canada says international students contribute $15 billion to the Canadian economy

Saudi Arabia responded by reducing the level of diplomatic relations and stopping cooperation with Ottawa in several fields, most notably trade, education and medicine.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova said that human rights should be promoted with respect for specific national customs and traditions.

Saudi Arabia has said it executed and crucified a man from Myanmar convicted of killing a woman and carrying out other crimes.

"There is nothing to mediate", Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters. "These issues may require constructive advice and assistance, but it should not come from a commanding tone coming from an alleged moral superiority".

In the days following the kingdom has continued to announce measures against Canada, including urgent plans to remove tens of thousands of Saudi students and an unspecified number of medical patients from Canada.

European traders said Saudi Arabia's main state wheat buying agency, the Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO), has told grains exporters it will no longer accept Canadian-origin grains in its global purchase tenders.

Van Straubenzee has known the prince since childhood and was an usher at Harry and Meghan's wedding at Windsor Castle in May. And, per usual, she looked extremely chic in a Club Monaco dress, paired with Aquazzura shoes and a Philip Treacy hat.

The kingdom has also expelled Canada's ambassador Dennis Horak, giving him 24 hours to leave the country over the intensifying diplomatic row. Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs Chrystia Freeland, whose tweet sparked the hostility, said that "Canada will continue to advocate for human rights and for the courageous women and men who push for these fundamental rights around the world" after Saudi's response.

Inflows slowed in recent years mainly due to low oil prices, but regional turmoil doesn't help, critics of the government say.

"We don't know which one, but the market has sold off, and the Canadian dollar also sold off from about that time".

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's main state wheat-buying agency, Saudi Grains Organization (SAGO), issued a notice to exporters that it will no longer buy Canadian wheat and barley.
