US TO REVEAL KILL DETAILS
WASHINGTON: The US is preparing to release intelligence on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi that is expected to implicate Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, saying the report would help bring accountability.
As part of a new focus on human rights, Joe Biden will declassify the report into the 2018 murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul of the USbased journalist, who had been critical of the prince.
The White House said Mr Biden would speak “very soon” to King Salman before the release of the report and was weighing up what action to take next.
State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters that the Biden administration would have more to say on “steps to promote accountability for this horrific crime”.
He said Mr Biden “will review the entirety of the relationship” with Saudi Arabia.
