Saudi Crown Prince Dubs Khashoggi's Murder Heinous

  • In the first statement ever on Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death, Mohammed bin Salman, the Saudi Crown Prince, has made his comment and called the crime heinous. This came in the light of his closest aides being suspected of being involved in the columnist's murder. Speaking at Riyadh's investors' conference, he stated that “This was a very, very painful incident for all Saudis and also for everybody on this planet. It was unnecessary.” However, according to the US officials, such a crime couldn't have been done without the Crown Prince's authorization.
