The US is expelling twenty-one cadets of the Saudi military after a cadet was involved in a mass killing at an airbase.

The servicemen were not blamed for assisting Saudi Air Force lieutenant in the Pensacola incident.

However, the cadets possessed Jihadist material and unethical pictures of children, according to US Attorney General William Barr.

Given that three sailors were killed and eight were wounded in an attack on 6th December.

The officials had put the training of Saudi servicemen on hold.

William Barr had called the Naval Air Station as an act of terrorism.

William Bar said in a press conference that he had directed Apple Company to unlock two iPhones the gunman had. The gunman had tried to destroy the phone by firing a bullet. However, FBI investigators had restored the phone.

He said, “We have asked Apple for their help in unlocking the shooter’s iPhones,”

“So far Apple has not given us any substantive assistance.”

William Barr informed that 17 of the cadets expelled had terrorist materials and most of them had unethical pictures of kids.

“While one of the individuals had a significant number of images, all the rest had one of two images, in most cases posted in a chat room by some other person or received over social media,”

It should be remembered that a gunman, identified as Mohammad Saeed Alshamrani, had shot three people. He was then shot dead by police. He belonged to Saudi Arabia and was a trainee at Pensacola naval base.

Pensacola base provides aviation training to foreign military and has been giving training to Saudi militants since 1995. It also provides training to students from other countries as well. The base employs over 16,000 military and 7400 civilians, as stated on its website.
