Jeremy Corbyn accuses May of ‘warm wards’ for Saudi Arabia prince

Putin and Saudi Crown Prince got real bro-y at G20 and it's weirding people out Putin and Saudi crown prince are best of buds at G20 summit

Riyadh and Algiers announced in a joint statement the formation of a higher coordination council, chaired by Prince Mohammed and Ouyahia.

After initially saying he had left the consulate alive, weeks later the Saudi administration admitted he was killed there.

During the visit, the Saudi crown prince met with Algerian Prime Minister Ahmed Ouyahia to discuss bilateral relations, developments of the oil market, and worldwide and regional issues of common interest including the situation in Palestine, Libya, Syria and Yemen.

Theresa May insisted today she had been "robust" with the Saudi Crown Prince accused of ordering the murder of Jamal Khashoggi after meeting him at the G20.

With its traditionally neutral stand, Algiers has good relations with Saudi Arabia's regional rival Iran but has also maintained cordial ties with Riyadh.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman resumed his Arab nations tour on Sunday with a two day state visit to Algeria.

Saudi Arabia has said that 21 people are in custody and vowed to keep probing the killing of Khashoggi, who was killed and dismembered after visiting the kingdom's Istanbul consulate to handle paperwork for his planned wedding.

Trump praises Roger Stone's 'guts,' slams former lawyer for cooperating with Mueller
" Nice to know that some people still have 'guts!' " Trump wrote on Twitter, highlighting Stone's loyalty to the president. Eisen cited that under the statute it is illegal to "cause or induce any person to withhold testimony".

Sanchez previously said the killing of Khashoggi was "terrible". The announcement was made in the presence of the Crown Prince and the Mauritanian president.

"There's no direct evidence linking him to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", Pompeo told CNN.

Montreal-based Saudi activist Omar Abdulaziz has filed a lawsuit against Israeli company NSO Group, which he says was hired by the Saudis to hack the pair's 400 messages on the social networking app.

"At least 11 messages to his closest adviser, who oversaw the team that killed journalist Jamal Khashoggi, in the hours before and after the journalist's death in October", it said, citing a classified Central Intelligence Agency assessment.

"President Putin and the Crown Prince held a rather fruitful and substantive discussion on the sidelines of the summit".

The embrace came amid reports that Russian Federation and Saudi Arabia have reached a pact to cut oil production when the OPEC cartel meets on 6 December in Vienna, to help shore up collapsing crude prices.
