PARIS – 23 October 2018: The chief executive of French state-owned utility EDF pulled out of this week's Saudi investment conference following an international outcry over Riyadh's admission of the death Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul.

"Jean-Bernard Levy will not be going to Riyadh as he has to attend a meeting of energy industry executives with the (French) president on Wednesday," an EDF spokesman said.
