In an interview with Fox News, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not aware of the Khashoggi case.
“The individuals did this out of the scope of their authority,” Jubeir told Fox News’ Bret Baierhe during an exclusive interview, adding that none of those involved in Khashoggi’s death had close ties to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
“There were not people closely tied to him. This was an operation that was a rogue operation,” he said.
The Saudi foreign minister gave his condolences to family of Khashoggi and said the death was an aberration and a huge and grave mistake.
He added that the Saudis are currently working on finding out where Khashoggi’s body is and determining the full details into what happened.
