Saudi crown prince denies ordering Khashoggi killing (Interview)

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS), Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, denied in an interview broadcast on Sunday that he ordered the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi operatives nearly a year ago but said he ultimately bears “full responsibility” for what happened because he is the country’s leader.

Speaking to the US network CBS on its 60 Minutes programme, MBS said: “Absolutely not,” when asked if he ordered the killing.

But he said he took full responsibility, “since it was committed by individuals working for the Saudi government”.
