Saudi Prince Responsible for Khashoggi Killing…

Saudi Prince Responsible for Khashoggi Killing, US Reports Reveal. Renowned journalist Jamal Khashoggi was gruesomely assassinated in the Istanbul Saudi consulate by Saudi operatives in 2018. An intelligence report released on Friday reveals that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia approved the killing. We assess that Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved an operation in Istanbul, Turkey, to capture or kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Avril D. Haines, Director of National Intelligence, via 'The New York Times'. With the revelation of the report, the Biden administration was immediately pressured to impose some form of travel sanctions on the Crown Prince. President Joe Biden referred to Saudi Arabia as a "pariah" state "with no redeeming value" in 2020. Administration officials say that the president will not impose a travel sanction on the Crown Prince due to the close relationship between the countries.

Pfizer Is Studying the Effects of a Third COVID-19 Vaccine Dose. Two doses of Pfizer's COVID-19 vaccine have proven to be 95% effective at preventing severe coronavirus infection. On Feb. 25, the drugmaker announced it will be studying the effects of a third "booster" shot among those who were fully vaccinated over six months ago. We believe that the third dose will raise the antibody response 10- to 20- fold, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, via NBC News. Two age groups will be observed in the study: 18 to 55 and 65 to 85. The participants are among some of the first to have ever received Pfizer's vaccine in its initial clinical trials. The third dose will be the same as what they received a year ago. Pfizer also intends to modify its vaccine to test against the variant from South Africa. Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla suspects that much like the flu, "you will have to go and get your annual shot for COVID to be protected."
