USA intelligence agencies have reportedly intercepted evidence suggesting Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman wanted to go after journalist Jamal Khashoggi with "a bullet" over a year before he was killed.
The New York Times, citing officials who had seen USA intelligence, said that Prince Mohammed had warned in an intercepted conversation to an aide in 2017 that he would go after Khashoggi "with a bullet" if he did not return to Saudi Arabia from the United States.
United States intelligence analysists reportedly concluded that Prince Mohammed had likely used the phrase a metaphor, expressing his intention to kill the journalists unless he returned to Saudi Arabia.
The murder was met with worldwide outrage and considerably hurt the image of the crown prince. He has disputed the Central Intelligence Agency findings and said that he stands by the prince, noting that he "vehemently denies" any involvement.
Eleven men are on trial in Saudi Arabia, accused of involvement in the killing.
