WASHINGTON: The United States will send home 21 Saudi military trainees after an investigation into the “jihadist” killing of three American sailors last month, the Justice Department announced late on Monday.

Attorney General Bill Barr said the December 6 shootings by Royal Saudi Air Force 2nd Lieutenant Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani at the US Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida was an “act of terrorism.” “The evidence shows that the shooter was motivated by jihadist ideology.” There was no evidence that Alshamrani had colluded with others, although Barr said FBI investigators had been unable to unlock his two phones to determine whom he had contacted.
