The Pentagon announced it will temporarily stop training Saudi military students in the United States following the last week's shooting in Pensacola by a Saudi air force officer.

Students from Saudi Arabia will continue classroom instruction but operational training is halted pending a security review, an official for the Departement of Defense said.

The suspension of operational training applies to all members of the Saudi military currently undergoing training in the United States.
