The U.S. intelligence officials said that Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the killing of  Jamal Khashoggi .

 According to a U.S. official familiar with the conclusion, who spoke Friday only on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.

Butmean while the Saudi Arabian Crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman has denied the accusations.

 The Trump administration this week sanctioned individuals for their alleged role in the killing, but the intelligence officials' conclusion bolsters efforts in Congress for a harsher U.S. response.

 The Washington Post columnist, who had been critical of the royal family, was killed last month at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

 Turkish and Saudi authorities say he was killed by a team from the kingdom inside the consulate after he went there to get marriage documents.
