Saudis in US targeted as kingdom cracks down on dissent


              Prince Abdullah bin Faisal al Saud wears cap and gown for his undergraduate graduation from Northeastern University in Boston, in 2018. Tough prison sentences that Saudi Arabia has handed the Saudi student and a Saudi-American citizen suggest Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is maintaining or escalating a crackdown on Saudi dissidents in the West, Saudi exiles and rights groups say. The Saudi prince who was attending graduate school in Boston is the latest person targeted as part of what the FBI and others say is Saudi Arabia's crackdown on Saudis in the United States.
