Saudi Crown Prince Meets Egyptian President in Cairo

Republican Sen. Mike Lee: ‘Next Congress’ Will Likely ‘Look Into’ Motive Behind Trump’s Decision-Making On Saudi Arabia

Congressional Republicans continued to line up this weekend to criticize President Trump over his defense of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who the Central Intelligence Agency believes ordered the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

It was the second protest in as many days against the de facto Saudi ruler, who was expected to fly into Tunis from Egypt on Tuesday for talks with President Beji Caid Essebsi as part of a regional tour.

He is planned to hold talks with President Sisi on ways to boost bilateral relations as well as on political issues of common concern in light of the strategic partnership binding the two countries. Bob Menendez are working on to sanction the Crown Prince.

Almost 100 Egyptian journalists have announced their rejection of the visit of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman to Cairo.

The Saudi crown prince is on his first foreign tour since the Khashoggi affair erupted, taking in the UAE and Bahrain ahead of Tunisia.

"It's really going to be about can you travel to the rest of Western capitals for the foreseeable future and expect to sort of shake people's hands, and I'm not sure that that's the case", said H.A. Hellyer, a scholar at the Royal United Services Institute and Atlantic Council.

A huge banner depicting the prince carrying a chainsaw - a reference to his alleged involvement in Khashoggi's gruesome murder and reported dismemberment at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul - was unfurled over the Tunisian journalists' union building.

A Republican senator privy to the intelligence also challenged Trump's denial this week that the CIA had concluded that the crown prince ordered the October 2 assassination.

CDC Warns Not to Eat Romaine Lettuce Amid Another E. coli Outbreak
If you don't know whether the lettuce is romaine or whether a salad mix contains romaine lettuce, the CDC advises discarding it. Restaurants are also advised to avoid serving romaine lettuce in any form, be it full leaves, chopped, or otherwise.

The crown prince faced an early rebuke during his stopover in Tunisia, where hundreds of protesters gathered late Monday to protest his visit.

"It was premeditated murder", he told the German newspaper, rather than a last resort after they failed to convince him to return to Saudi Arabia.

"Since the deal was signed by Defense Secretary [James] Mattis and [Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed] bin Salman in Riyadh, there has been minimal activity towards purchasing the defense equipment and arms laid out in the arms agreements and signed", ABC wrote.

"We refuse to turn Tunisia into a destination to whitewash war crimes", she said.

"Universal jurisdiction cases are an increasingly important part of worldwide efforts to hold those responsible for atrocities accountable, provide justice to victims who have nowhere else to turn, deter future crimes, and help ensure that countries do not become safe havens for human rights abusers", the statement highlighted.

Representative Adam Schiff has hit out at Donald Trump's support for Saudi Arabia, arguing that authoritarian leaders and despots will see the president's response to the high profile murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as giving them a pass.

Cavusolgu said, however, that the final decision is up to Erdogan.
