Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has admitted for the first time that he was responsible for the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at his country's consulate in Istanbul last year.

"I take full responsibility for the killing of Khashoggi because it happened under my administration," bin Salman told Reuters in an interview broadcast by the US broadcaster PBS.

"The incident took place without his knowledge," bin Salman claimed during the dialogue, which will be broadcast by the network in full on the first of next month in conjunction with the first anniversary of the killing of Khashoggi.

It is noteworthy that the Saudi regime initially presented several contradictory accounts of the killing of Khashoggi on the second of last October and resorted after increasing pressure on him to try to mislead the public and keep the attention away from the involvement of his officials, especially Ibn Salman in the crime by announcing a mock trial of 11 people He described them as being involved in the crime and at the first hearing of their trial earlier this year, the Saudi Public Prosecution requested the death penalty for five of them.
