US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered on October 2, 2018 in Saudi Arabia. In 2019, Saudi’s crown prince Mohammed bin Salman had taken ‘full responsibility’ for the killing but denied ordering it.
US intelligence agencies concluded in 2018 that the prince likely ordered the killing, a finding reported by news media but never officially released.
The claimed attack comes just after a visit by outgoing U.S. Secretary of State to the kingdom to see Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman
After becoming Crown Prince in June 2017, MBS first cracked down in September 2017 on dissident clerics, academics, writers and human rights activists, followed by the detention of a few hundred prominent royal family members and businessmen on charges of corruption.

Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de facto ruler, has come under huge international pressure after the US-based writer was killed and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
'The seven-day visit is aimed at drawing the attention of the world towards what is happening in Kashmir,' Pakistan Foreign Minister said.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan, during an address to the nation on Monday, also said that he will raise the Kashmir issue at every international forum, including at the UN General Assembly.
The Crown Prince's phone call came as US President Donald Trump spoke with Khan and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and urged both sides to defuse tensions over Kashmir.
'I am extremely angry and unhappy' about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi at Saudi's consulate in Istanbul, US President Donald Trump said.
'Any party exploiting the case politically should stop doing so, and present evidence to the (Saudi) court, which will contribute to achieving justice,' Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said, without directly naming Turkey.
