U.S. President, Joe Biden has announced sanctions and visa bans on Saudi Arabian citizens over the 2018 killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
However, the sanctions only affect the Saudi citizens but not on the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who ordered the operation that killed the U.S. journalist according to intelligence report.
The 59-year old journalist was lured to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018 and killed by a team of operatives linked to the crown prince. They then dismembered his body. His remains have never been found.
