Washington, February 27

Saudi Arabia’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) approved an operation to “capture or kill” exiled journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the kingdom’s consulate in Turkey, according to a declassified US intelligence report released by the Biden administration on the grisly murder of the leading dissident in 2018.

The US has announced “Khashoggi Ban” that imposes visa restrictions on 76 Saudi individuals for “threatening dissidents overseas”.

The Saudi government said it “completely rejects the negative and false assessment”. — PTI
