German government to ‘cancel Saudi tank deal’

Berlin (AFP) – The German government will not approve a reported deal to sell up to 800 battle tanks to Saudi Arabia, a German Sunday newspaper said, citing government sources.

The sale of the Leopard-2 tanks had been billed as one of the biggest deals for the German armaments industry, Bild reported.

NB – I have no idea why the article included a pic of WW II era Tiger Tank.
