TDN World Desk: Re-igniting the incident of horrific assassination of the Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a former top-ranking Saudi intelligence official living in exile in Canada alleged in a lawsuit filed in a U.S. court on Thursday that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman sent a hit squad to kill him in 2018 but that effort was aborted by the intervention of Canadian authority.

Saad al-jabri, who worked as a long time aide to Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, has filed a 106-page lawsuit, alleging that the crown prince MBS wanted to kill him because he knew too much about his corrupt affairs.

In 2017, Crown prince Salman ousted rival prince Nayef – one of the legal claimant of royal throne -making him the de facto ruler of Saudi Arabia.
