The Prime Minister Rishi Sunak hopes to meet the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, the man widely believed to have ordered the murder of Journalist Jamal Kashogji at the “earliest opportunity”.

That’s according to Downing Street. Both men spoke by phone earlier today, although Number 10 wouldn’t confirm reports that the Saudi leader will visit the UK this autumn.
