BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:20 A.M.) – The founder of the Virgin Group, Richard Branson, announced on Thursday that he is suspending his billion dollar project in Saudi Arabia, the New York Post reported.

Citing the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Branson made the announcement on Thursday after the U.S. Senate called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding this situation.

“What has reportedly happened in Turkey around the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi Government,” Branson stated.

“We have asked for more information from the authorities in Saudi and to clarify their position in relation to Mr Khashoggi,” he  added.

Last week, Jamal Khashoggi mysteriously disappeared after attending a meeting at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

And what about the 30,000 Iranian peaceful opponents your Khamenei mass murdered to celebrate his succession of Khomeini?

The killed journalist made the news. The thousands of dead Yemenis didn’t. That’s the difference.
