Riyadh, Feb 9. Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi Minister of
State for Foreign Affairs has rejected the attempt to link Saudi Crown
Prince Mohammed bin Salman
to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

He told reporters in Washington that the claims were
“baseless” and those involved will be held accountable, Xinhua news
agency reported on Saturday, citing Al Arabiya TV.

Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in
Turkey’s Istanbul in October 2018, and a number of top Saudi officials involved
in the case were arrested.

The Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud also ordered to
re-structure the intelligence authority. Last month, Saudi Public Prosecution
demanded capital punishment against five out of 11 suspects in the murder case.

The operation wasn’t authorised, Al-Jubeir affirmed,
highlighting “no order was given to conduct this operation.”
