Khashoggi murder 'happened under my watch,' Saudi crown prince

The crown prince of Saudi Arabia says he bears responsibility for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, because it, quote, "happened under my watch".

Mohammed Bin Salman made the comment in a PBS documentary to be broadcast next week.

The kingdom's de facto ruler has not spoken publicly about the killing of the Washington Post columnist inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last year.

The CIA and some Western governments have said he ordered it.

But Saudi officials insist he had no role in the death of the royal insider who became an outspoken critic.

His body was reportedly dismembered and removed from the building - his remains have not been found.

After initial denials, the official Saudi narrative blamed the murder on rogue operatives.

Eleven Saudi suspects have been put on trial in secretive proceedings.

But only a few hearings have been held.

The death sparked global uproar - tarnishing the crown prince's image and threatening ambitious plans to diversify the economy of the world's top oil exporter and open up cloistered Saudi society.

MBS, as he is often known, has not visited the United States or Europe since.

PBS documentary "The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia," is set to air on October 1, ahead of the one-year anniversary of Khashoggi's death.
