New oil pipeline launched between Bahrain, Saudi Arabia

US President Donald Trump said last week Washington would remain a "steadfast partner" of Saudi Arabia despite saying that Prince Mohammed may have known about the plan to murder Khashoggi.

President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi received on Monday, Nov. 26 Bin Salman upon his arrival at Cairo International Airport.

In his Sunday appearance on CNN, Schiff emphasized his concern about Trump's financial ties to the kingdom, and the possibility that these interests could play a role in the president's foreign policy.

The complaint also accuses the crown prince and Saudi government of torture of Saudi citizens.

Dozens of Tunisian rights activists and journalists staged a small protest in the capital Tunis on Monday against Prince Mohammed's planned visit over the Khashoggi killing.

People chant slogans and hold banners as they take part in a protest, opposing the visit of Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Tunis, Tunisia, November 27, 2018.

"It's inconsistent with the intelligence I've seen", Lee said.

Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 in an operation that Turkish authorities have said was ordered by the highest level of Saudi leadership, prompting the kingdom's biggest political crisis in a generation.

Mohammed bin Salman has a very good reason to skip the G20 summit in Buenos Aires this week.

"It is impossible that I embark on a tour in North Africa without touching down in Tunisia", the crown prince told Al Arabiya News Channel.

The Saudi Crown Prince is now in the spotlight due to slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi's killing.

A United States official told CNN Friday that there is still is no smoking gun implicating the crown prince directly and the intelligence assessment is ongoing. "The intelligence I've seen suggests that this was ordered by the crown prince".

And Corker said he was looking at making "some enhancements" to a request for the Trump administration to investigate whether bin Salman committed human rights violations and should be slapped with sanctions under the federal Magnitsky Act.

Tunisian officials stressed the "historical and fraternal" relations between Tunis and Riyadh, adding that the region would suffer if Saudi Arabia, a regional power, was destabilised by Prince Mohammed's removal.

The head of Argentina's state prosecutors' association Carlos Rivolo said the complaint against Prince Salman was referred to a prosecutor, who will then have to decide whether to open a formal probe, the New York Times reported.
