BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:35 A.M.) – The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia Mohammad bin Salman called the killing of Saudi journalist and dissident Jamal Khashoggi a very “painful” incident and pledged to investigate, speaking at a global investor conference in Riyadh on Wednesday.
The Crown Prince added that all kinds of legal mechanisms will be used to solve the case adding that the investigation will be held in cooperation with Turkey.
The Saudi government admitted earlier that Khashoggi died in the consulate but claim that this was following a dispute that became violent.
This explanation has however been branded unsatisfactory and not credible by many in the international community, and pressure continues to build on the Crown Prince who is suspected of personal involvement in the planning of the killing or at least knowledge of it.
