Sick Bouteflika cancels meeting with visiting Saudi crown prince

At G-20 And At Home, A Test For Saudi's Crown Prince: Can He Survive Khashoggi Fallout?

Algerian Energy Minister Mustapha Guitouni said the prince "is welcome in his second country".

Despite the global outrage, Western powers have pledged to maintain close relations with Saudi Arabia, a top oil producer and buyer of United States weapons.

Emmanuel Macron was recorded speaking to Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince and issued some stern words to the leader over the scandal behind the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Mr Corbyn said: "The Prime Minister told the media she would 'sit down and be robust" with Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman - the chief architect of the brutal war in Yemen which has killed 56,000 people and brought 14 million to the brink of starvation. The summit marked the Saudi Crown Prince's first major global diplomatic test since the murder of Saudi journalist, Jamal Khashoggi, on October 2.

A Central Intelligence Agency assessment released in November appeared to implicate bin Salman in Khashoggi's murder.

The Argentine president let it be understood that he discussed the Khashoggi killing with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a persistent crown prince Mohammed critic, but not with the prince himself.

The crown prince was met with protests in Tunisia, but has been warmly received by government officials in the region.

But in August, when he believed their conversations may have been intercepted by Saudi authorities, a sense of foreboding descends over Khashoggi. The announcement was made in the presence of the Crown Prince and the Mauritanian president.

The global activist group Human Rights Watch, even as it pursues a criminal complaint against crown prince Mohammed, suggested that no democratically elected leader should be faulted for sitting down with the crown prince.

On Friday, May's office said the prime minister stressed to Salman the importance of ensuring those responsible for the "appalling murder" of Khashoggi are held to account.

Saudi Arabia has said the prince had no prior knowledge of the killing.

"And when it is done, when you complete that analysis, there's no direct evidence linking him to the murder of Jamal Khashoggi".
