MBS vowed to bring justice to those responsible for the heinous killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, adding that ‘it was very painful to Saudis and to the rest of the world.’

First of all, the crime was really painful to all Saudis and I believe it’s very painful to every human in the world. It’s a heinous crime that can’t be justified. Saudi Arabia will go and implement all necessary rules and investigate deeply in order to achieve results and to bring to justice those who were responsible for this heinous crime, and they will be put before the courts. There’s no doubt.
