A US intelligence report has concluded that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman personally approved the murder of the exiled journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018.
He was killed while visiting the Saudi consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul.
The declassified intelligence report says Prince Salman approved a plan to either “capture or kill” Khashoggi, who had criticised the Saudi regime.
It’s the first time America has publicly named the crown prince, who has denied ordering the murder.
