U.S. Treasury sanctions former Saudi official and 'Tiger Squad', but not crown prince, in connection with Khashoggi murderThe Treasury Department announced Friday that it has sanctioned Saudi Arabia's Rapid Intervention Force, called the "Tiger Squad," and a former Saudi intelligence officer, for their direct involvement in the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Ahmad Hassan Mohammed al Asiri, the former deputy head of the country's General Intelligence Presidency, was called the "ringleader" of the murder by the department. The U.S. did not sanction Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The New York Times reported that unnamed senior administration officials said the price for directly penalizing the crown price was too high. The order freezes any assets held by the targets in the U.S. and also prohibits Americans from doing business with them. Earlier Friday, the Biden administration released an intelligence assessment concluding the crown prince likely approved an operation to capture or kill the journalist in Istanbul.
