Credible evidence’ Saudi crown prince liable for Khashoggi killing

Foreign Affairs Correspondent

It was an “a deliberate, premeditated execution… for which the state of Saudi Arabia is responsible”.

That’s the conclusion of a report into the killing of  journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last October by UN special rapporteur Agnes Callamard.

She also found there to be “credible evidence” that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and other senior Saudi officials are liable for his death and should be investigated.

A Saudi official responded tonight by saying the report contained “baseless allegations”.

A warning: this report contains descriptions viewers may find distressing.
