Prince Salman Sent A Suspicious Messages about Khashoggi Murder
The man who headed the unit that journalist Jamal Khashoggi killed in Turkey, received numerous reports from the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman around the murder.
This is stated by the newspaper Wall Street Journal, which relies on information from a secret report from the CIA intelligence service.
The prince, the de facto leader of Saudi Arabia, reportedly sent eleven messages to his confidant Saud al-Qahtani, according to the report. That happened in the hours around the killing of Khashoggi.
The cynical columnist for the Washington Post was killed at the beginning of October in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Saud al-Qahtani was reportedly in contact with the chief of the Saudi team in Istanbul.
It is unclear what kind of messages he would have obtained from the crown prince. There would be no direct proof that Prince Mohammed personally instructed to eliminate Khashoggi.
