He also described the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as "a mistake."

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Prince Mohammed called for global action against Iran, warning that oil prices could rise astronomically otherwise.

Saudi Women Are Pushing the Limits of What They Can Wear

  Saudi Women Are Pushing the Limits of What They Can Wear Munira Al Mutairi sometimes wonders what it would be like to leave her house without covering herself in an abaya, the shape-covering cloak that Saudi women wear in public. “It would be a kind of liberation,” she said at a private residential compound in Riyadh where a group of women were smoking hookah, another taboo. “I don’t want anyone to put conditions on me -- that you’re a woman, you have to be like this, don’t show your face.

"If the world does not take a strong and firm action to deter Iran, we will see further escalations that will threaten world interests," he told CBS program 60 Minutes.

"Oil supplies will be disrupted and oil prices will jump to unimaginably high numbers that we haven't seen in our lifetimes."

The US, France, Germany and Britain have backed Saudi assertions that Iran was behind the attack, as opposed to the Houthi rebel group that has claimed responsibility.

The crown prince said he would prefer a political rather than a military response to Iran, as a war between Saudi Arabia and Iran would collapse the global economy.

In the same interview, bin Salman — also known by his initials MBS — also denied ordering the murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, but said that as leader of the country he bore responsibility.

"This was a heinous crime," he told the program. "But I take full responsibility as a leader in Saudi Arabia, especially since it was committed by individuals working for the Saudi government." Prince Mohammed said he was "absolutely not" behind the killing, calling it "a mistake."

Khashoggi's murder in October 2018 triggered an international backlash against Saudi Arabia, with the US Congress blaming the crown prince for the killing, and the United Nations calling for an investigation into his role in the slaying.
