Swiss halt Saudi arms parts trade over Khashoggi case

Switzerland has announced to halt deliveries of weapons parts to Saudi Arabia, citing concern over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul.

Fabian Maienfisch, spokesman of the economic affairs department, told newsmen that Swiss government will follow developments and can potentially reverse the decision in the future.
