Moment Macron challenges Saudi Crown Prince over Khashoggi murder - 'you NEVER listen'

At G-20 And At Home, A Test For Saudi's Crown Prince: Can He Survive Khashoggi Fallout?

Bin Salman is under intense scrutiny after a team of 15 Saudis murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his country's consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) is nearing the end of a long, worldwide tour - his first major trip since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October. That being said, we may never know all of the facts surrounding the murder of Mr. Jamal Khashoggi.

A similar action was taken outside the Russian embassy, where a street was this year renamed in honor of prominent Vladimir Putin critic Boris Nemtsov, who was assassinated in Moscow in 2015.

The prime minister says he also spoke directly with Saudi Arabia's crown prince on the margins of a dinner last night in which he discussed the diplomatic discord that has been happening between Canada and the kingdom. The crown prince denies involvement, yet the Central Intelligence Agency has reportedly concluded that he ordered the assassination.

A French presidential spokesperson said Macron told bin Salman at the summit that Europeans will insist on worldwide experts being part of the investigations into the Saudi journalist's murder. From there, he wrote a monthly column in the Washington Post in which he criticised the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

This has strained Saudi Arabia's ties with the West and affected the prince's image overseas.

Senate defies Trump, showing anger with Saudis for Khashoggi
The procedural vote received more Republican support than had been expected after the resolution, sponsored by Republican Sen. Last time Congress took that bill was in March and it fell short by six votes then.

On a separate front for the crown prince, Argentina's state prosecutor is looking into whether criminal charges can be filed against him for alleged war crimes by the Saudi-led coalition fighting in Yemen.

Algerian and Saudi flags are pictured in Algiers ahead of the visit of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Algeria on December 2, 2018. Report Claims CIA Has "Smoking Gun Phone Call" Linking Saudi Crown Prince to Jamal Khashoggi Killing. But Prince Mohammed has repeatedly denied planning or participating in the murder, instead placing the blame on rogue operatives.

Prince Mohammed has in recent days travelled to the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Egypt and Tunisia, before heading to Buenos Aires on Wednesday for the G20 summit. Chas Freeman, who served as USA ambassador to Saudi Arabia in the early 90s, calls Prince Ahmed a "very quiet, unassuming, careful person" - a sharp contrast from the personality of the hard-charging crown prince.

"On the issue of Yemen, we continue to be deeply concerned about the humanitarian situation", May said.

He said Ankara has shared this evidence with all countries who requested it, including the United States, Britain, Germany and Saudi Arabia.
