US criticises Saudi for barring Israeli paper reporter

US President Barack Obama disembarks from Air Force One upon arrival at Amsterdam Schiphol International Airport on March 24, 2014The White House on Tuesday criticised Saudi Arabia for refusing a visa to a journalist working for Israeli media who planned to cover President Barack Obama’s visit to the kingdom. The Jerusalem Post said that its Washington bureau chief, US citizen Michael Wilner, was the only journalist to be denied a visa to Saudi Arabia to cover Obama’s brief visit Friday. “We were very disappointed by the Saudi decision,” US deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes told reporters on Obama’s current leg of the trip in Belgium. “It certainly should not be the case that the affiliation of a journalist should in any way count against their ability to do their job, just because they work for The Jerusalem Post,” Rhodes said.
