  • Putin and Saudi Crown Prince got real bro-y at G20 and it's weirding people out

In a nod to growing criticism at home on Saudi Arabia, Trump only exchanged "pleasantries" with the crown prince, according to the White House.

Mohamed Ould Sidi, president of the student association spearheading the anti-Crown Prince protests in Mauritania, told Mauritanian outlet Al-Araby al-Jadeed: "We Mauritanians will not stand by and let the murderer of Yemeni children pollute our soil".

Saudi prosecutors maintain that the 15-man team sent to Istanbul exceeded its authority when the lead negotiator in the team chose to kill Khashoggi for refusing orders to return.

"He is responsible for the death of a large number of children and civilians in Yemen, the jailing of many Saudi citizens who did not commit a crime, and lastly, the crime against Jamal Khashoggi", he said.

President Donald Trump has also denied U.S. media reports that the Central Intelligence Agency believes such an operation would have needed the approval of Prince Mohammed, known as MBS.

The Supreme Court also issued a statement saying Chief Justice John Roberts ordered the building closed for the day of mourning. Said her friend Sue Miller, also in line for the viewing: "I actually think I underestimated him when he was in office".

Putin's friendly behavior toward the crown prince contrasted sharply with that of other leaders at the Buenos Aires summit, amid suspicions of his possible involvement in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October. Saudi Arabia's acknowledgement that the journalist had been killed in a fight inside the consulate came after two weeks of denials and growing pressure from Western allies to provide explanations.

Private messages obtained by CNN between Washington Post writer Jamal Khashoggi and Canadian activist Omar Abdulaziz reveal Khashoggi held a deep disdain for the Saudi crown prince and was fearful of increasing power over the Saudi kingdom.

'Germany, the Netherlands, Norway and others have stopped arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

His visit to Tunis was greeted by demonstrations against Khashoggi's murder and the war in Yemen. "That is a accurate statement, it is an important statement, and it is a statement that we are making publicly today".

Meanwhile, when asked about the Khashoggi killing, the MI6 spy chief said yesterday that it was "an appalling and shocking attack".

And while we don't know the final details of the USMCA, we do know that it largely resembles, in many ways, what was there before. Mr Trudeau said the deal was a major step for Canada's economy but warned that there is more work to be done.

After receiving word from Saudi Arabia that authorities had seen messages between the pair, Abdulaziz informed Khashoggi who simply wrote back: 'God help us'.

In August 2018 Khashoggi and Abdel Aziz suspected that their correspondence might be intercepted by the authorities in Saudi Arabia.

Abdulaziz, who lives in Canada, is a sharp critic of the Saudi monarchy on social media.

Abdulaziz said that their, and the Saudi government's, greatest weapon was Twitter.
