Late Khashoggi’s son visits the “house of Saud”
Following the gruesome murder of Jamal Khashoggi, a journalist for Washington Post, his son Salah Khashoggi has been invited to the Yamama Palace in Riyadh by the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
Our news source gathered that King Salman and the crown prince received Khashoggi’s son, Salah, and his brother, Sahel.
Meanwhile, Pundits on Twitter reacted swiftly and sharply to a photo that went viral showing Jamal Khashoggi’s son with a pained facial expression as he shook the hand of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

A friend of the Khashoggi family told The Associated Press that Salah has been under a travel ban since his father began writing critically about the prince in columns for The Washington Post. The individual spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing reprisal.
Crown Prince bin Salman has come under mounting international pressure with critics suspecting he ordered the high-profile assassination or at least knew about it.
