U.S. Department of State

Daily Press Briefing
Philip T. Reeker, Deputy Spokesman
Washington, DC
May 12, 2003

QUESTION: Do you have anything else about Saudi attempts to arrest any of the 19 people that they were seeking in connection with arms cache?

MR. REEKER: I don't. You would need to ask the Saudis about that.

QUESTION: This is probably more of an FBI question. But do you have anything on Saudi, a Saudi diplomat, unable to enter this country from LA?

MR. REEKER: Unable to enter this country from LA?

QUESTION: No, exit to LA, I mean.

MR. REEKER: Last I checked, LA was still in the country. We have been consulted, I am told, by the Department of Homeland Security, the immigration bureaus there, regarding the expulsion of an individual, and we have been in touch with the Saudi Embassy regarding the decision. But I would have to refer you to that Department, or to the Saudi Embassy themselves for any other comment.

QUESTION: You said you don't have anything on the grounds for expulsion or --

QUESTION: He was expelled, correct?

MR. REEKER: No, I don't have anything else. You would want to talk to those guys.
