The Saudi Embassy in U.S. has asked Saudi students to undergo laboratory examinations to verify  paternity of abandoned children, as claimed by their American mothers.

According to reports by news daily Al Hayat, more than 10 American women have filed complaints  at  the Saudi Embassy in Washington against Saudi students  who abandoned their children after birth.

In a telephone interview with Al-Hayat, the Saudi Cultural Attaché in Washington, D.C., Dr. Mohammed Al-Eisa said that failure to take the DNA tests would result in the students losing their scholarship.
