What would be a foiled murder plot is straining relations between Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Former Saudi intelligence agent Saad al-Jabri sues Saudi crown prince in the United States, alleging that Mohammed Bin Salman (MBS) sent the “hit squad” that assassinated journalist Jamal Khashoggi to kill him in Canada .

In a rare reprimand, the US State Department praised al-Jabri and demanded answers on the safety of his children, who went missing in March.

Will US President Donald Trump, a staunch supporter of MBS, be forced to act?
