Saudi military trainees to be expelled from U.S. after Florida shooting- CNN

Three sailors were killed and eight other people were wounded before Alshamrani was shot dead by police.

In the course of the investigation, though, Barr said officials identified 21 members of the Saudi military who had inappropriate materials and will be shipped back to their country this week.

The shooting prompted the Pentagon to suspend operational training of all Saudi Arabian military students in the US indefinitely, as federal investigators conduct a security review of the some 850 military students in the USA from Saudi Arabia.

Barr said the investigation shows Alshamrani acted alone despite early reports that other Saudi troops had assisted in or recorded the attack.

Mohammed Saeed Alshamrani, was "motivated by jihadist ideology", Barr said, adding he posted a message last September 11 that "the countdown has begun" and visited the 9/11 Memorial in New York City on Thanksgiving weekend.

More than 20 Saudi military students have been ordered out of the USA, media reported late Sunday, in the wake of massacre at an American navy base by a student from the kingdom.

The December shooting raised questions about how well global military students are screened before they attend training at American bases. Investigators believe the gunman and other Saudi trainees watched videos of other mass shootings at a party before the attack.

National protection consultant Robert O'Brien stated in a meeting on Fox News that the shooting "showed that there had been errors in the way that we vetted" the students.

The shooting threatened a decades-old military training program crucial to the US-Saudi relationship, which involves billions of dollars of military sales to the kingdom.

On Dec. 19, the Pentagon announced that it found no threat in its review of about 850 military students from Saudi Arabia studying in the United States. CNN said U.S. Navy officials referred questions to the Defense Department, which had not responded to the network.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper said on Sunday that in the wake of the shooting, the Department of Justice "has taken a number of steps to ensure that it does not happen again".

The FBI's top lawyer, Dana Boente, sent a letter to Apple asking for the company's help to open two iPhones that belonged to the gunman.

The Saudi government has been cooperative in the FBI investigation, even going so far as to help American investigators link particular social media accounts to individuals, according to a USA official.

After a federal judge ordered him to unlock the iPhone owned by the San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook.

Attorney General Barr, US Attorneys and the Federal Bureau of Investigation continue to explore the details behind the attack.

At the very least among the phones was sacked by a constable's replacement throughout the strike, yet private investigators think they might still have the ability to draw out information from the gadget, according to an individual knowledgeable about the issue.
