“No smoking gun,” pro-government Saudi commentators concluded in response to a US intelligence assessment that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had approved the operation to capture or kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A few minutes after the report was released, many Saudis flooded Twitter with the hashtag saying, “We are all Mohammed bin Salman.” Rights groups called for tough action.

Saudi Arabia, one of Washington’s closest Arab allies, officially dismissed what it called the “negative, false and unacceptable assessment in the report pertaining to the kingdom’s leadership”, according to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
