    Saudi Arabia has hit back at US claims that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman likely approved the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The Biden administration has released a report – gathered by intelligence after his killing in 2018. It was classified, until now. Despite the findings, Washington has stopped short of imposing sanctions directly on the Prince. The Saudi government says it completely rejects the CIA’s findings.

    It was originally suppressed by the Trump administration, but three years later it has been declassified, its conclusions clear for the world to see.

    US intelligence says it’s likely that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the capture or killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. But the Pentagon is pulling no punches.

    The report doesn’t detail any new evidence but stresses the Crown Prince’s control on decision making. He has always denied knowing about the plot.

    Khashoggi was lured to the Saudi Consulate in Turkey. There he was killed and dismembered by a hit team sent from Riyadh. The Saudi Government eventually admitted killing Khashoggi, but blamed it on a rogue security team.

    The public naming of Mohammed bin Salman as complicit in the killing will set a new tone for the relationship between the Washington and Riyadh. The Biden administration has imposed sanctions on dozens of Saudi officials but stopped short of targeting the prince.
