MBS to head to Algeria amid outcry

MBS to head to Algeria amid outcry

The Saudi Gazette newspaper posted video of the meeting online, showing the two speaking in hushed tones with their heads close together.

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.

After repeatedly denying knowledge of the journalist's whereabouts for nearly two weeks, Saudi authorities later acknowledged that the Washington Post columnist had been killed.

The worldwide blowback to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is making things uncomfortable for Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at this year's Group of 20 summit, which began Friday in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

According to CNN, the idea to change the street's name started about a month ago following an online petition.

Prince Mohammed may have achieved his goal of showing Saudi Arabia - specifically himself - remained a player by attending the G20 summit, despite the storm surrounding Khashoggi's death still raging.

Both leaders have spoken directly to Saudi Arabia's crown prince at the summit of world leaders.

United States intelligence agencies have concluded that the crown prince must have at least known about the plot to kill Khashoggi.

Still, MBS sent at least 11 messages to his closest adviser - who oversaw the team that killed Khashoggi - in the hours before and after the journalist's death, according to a classified Central Intelligence Agency assessment seen by the Wall Street Journal.

Speaking in Buenos Aires, Putin said on Saturday that he had no concrete figures on possible output cuts but that Russian Federation would continue contributing to reducing global output.

The Saudi press agency reported early on Saturday that the crown prince and Xi had discussed the partnership between the two countries and ways to harmonise Saudi Arabia's 2030 vision - a plan to diversify the economy away from oil - with China's Belt and Road Initiative.

Three minutes later Khashoggi writes back: "God help us".

Algiers is the latest stop for the Saudi crown prince who has been on a regional tour that has seen him visit the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Tunisia, Mauritania and his recent stop in Argentina where he took part in the annual G20 summit.

It is his first trip overseas since the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which has strained Saudi Arabia's ties with the West and battered the prince's image overseas.

Canada has been outspoken on human rights in Saudi Arabia, which has retaliated by breaking off diplomatic relations and vowing to end trade.

The civil war in Yemen constitutes the largest humanitarian catastrophe going on in the world today, Trudeau said, adding it is a subject that has been raised throughout the G20 summit.
