A US intelligence report found that the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammed bin Salman approved of the killing of US-based journalist Jamal Kashoggi according to Reuters.
The report had contributions from the CIA. It states that the Crown Prince approved and possibly even ordered the killing of the Washington Post journalist. Kashoggi wrote a column in the paper criticising the policies of the Crown Prince. US President Joe Biden has said he has read the report and will speak to King Salman about it. A spokeswoman from the White House Jen Psaki told Reuters that the report is being readied and will be soon released.
Although Biden is keeping all interactions with the King restricted, other people in his administration are communicating with Saudi officials. Jamal Khashoggi was killed and dismembered in 2018 by a team of operatives in Istanbul allegedly linked to the crown prince
