MIT Won't Break With Saudi Arabia Over Khashoggi Murder

CAMBRIDGE (AP) -- An MIT review of the school's ties to Saudi Arabia has concluded that it should not break with the kingdom following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. 

Associate Provost Richard Lester made the recommendation Thursday after he was asked to undertake the review in October. President Rafael Reif will make the final decision. 

An Associated Press analysis of federal data found that Saudi Arabia's national oil company has given $4 million to MIT over the last decade.
