Saudi crown prince told aide he would use 'a bullet' on Khashoggi: report

Saudi crown prince told aide he would use 'a bullet' on Khashoggi: reportSaudi Arabia’s crown prince told a senior aide he would go after Jamal Khashoggi “with a bullet” a year before the dissident journalist was killed inside the kingdom’s Istanbul consulate, the New York Times reported Thursday quoting US intelligence. US intelligence understood that Mohammed bin Salman, the country’s 33-year-old de facto ruler, was ready to kill the journalist, although he may not have literally meant to shoot him, according to the newspaper. After initially denying any knowledge of Khashoggi’s disappearance, the kingdom has acknowledged that a team killed him inside the diplomatic mission but described it as a rogue operation that did not involve the crown prince.

Surging US output 'a concern' for oil market: OPEC

Surging US output 'a concern' for oil market: OPECOil prices, long battered by a global glut in supply, have been rising recently as the market returns to balance on the back of a landmark deal between producers to throttle output, but surging shale production in the United States could throw a spanner in the works, OPEC said on Monday. Crude prices fell as low as $ 35 per barrel at the start of 2016, but they have been rising since, reaching a three-year high of more than $ 70 per barrel last month, “on signs that production adjustments by OPEC and non-OPEC participating countries are balancing the market,” the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries wrote in its latest monthly market report. OPEC countries and other oil-producing countries, such as Russia, agreed at the end of 2016 to cut back production to combat the global glut in oil.
