Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon , says the government will keep pressuring Saudi Arabian authorities not to execute 23-year-old Mohamed Kohail, Reuters reported. Mr. Kohail and his younger brother, both Canadian citizens, face harsh penalties in connection with a schoolyard fight last year in which one Saudi boy died. "I intend to speak to speak to my Saudi counterpart in the near future and to really reiterate our concern. A diplomatic note has been sent to the Saudi ministry of foreign affairs to that effect," Mr. Cannon told reporters last week. He added that he met the Saudi chargé d'affaires in Ottawa last week to raise the case.
