Khashoggi's son forced to meet Saudi crown prince

Jamal Khashoggi is under travel restrictions


Criticism was sharp following a move by the Saudi King and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to receive Jamal Khashoggi's son, Salah and his brother Sahel at the Yamama Palace in Riyadh on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a "tremendous mistake" and part of a rogue operation even though Saudi Arabia denied it for weeks.

The two royals expressed their condolences, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency, which ran the handshake photo but the look on Jamal Khashoggi's face was indicative of a person meeting those responsible for his father's brutal murder.

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.
