After Khashoggi, Saudi prince looks to rebuild image abroad

Saudi Arabia has faced intense global criticism over the killing of insider-turned-critic Khashoggi in its Istanbul consulate on October 2.

He then headed to Bahrain over the weekend and traveled to Egypt on Monday where he held talks with President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi.

In Tunis, he is expected to hold talks with the country's president and prime minister.

The complaint also accuses the crown prince and Saudi government of torture of Saudi citizens.

For a second day in a row, Tunisians have taken to the streets of the country's capital to express their anger at a visit by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Intelligence officials have said the CIA presented the President with a confidence-based assessment given the facts of the situation.

The US Central Intelligence Agency has concluded the crown prince was behind the killing.

Democrats intend to probe US President Donald Trump's financial ties to determine whether they are the "hidden hand" driving US foreign policy on Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia, the incoming chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said on Sunday (Nov 25).

"Tunisian civil-society groups are organizing protests against bin Salman's scheduled visit on Tuesday", Sakina Abdel Samad, a member of the Tunisian Journalists' Syndicate, told reporters on Monday at the syndicate's Tunis headquarters.

The G20 conference gets underway in three days time in Buenos Aires, and Argentina is reportedly considering charging Mohammed bin Salman with war crimes.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has asked for a meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and that there was now no reason not to meet him, said Turkey's foreign minister.

"It was premeditated murder", he told the German newspaper, rather than a last resort after they failed to convince him to return to Saudi Arabia. The organization says "many of these attacks ... indicate possible war crimes".

If reports about the CIA's intelligence are true, the SC senator said "everything would be on the table" for punishment-including the end to President Donald Trump's acclaimed arms deal-as "we can not have a normal strategic relationship with somebody this insane".

"A decision by Argentine officials to move toward investigation would be a strong signal that even powerful officials like Mohammed bin Salman are not beyond the reach of the law", Roth said.
