New suit alleges Saudi hit squad was turned back at the border


A new lawsuit alleges that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia sent a hit squad to Canada to try to hunt down and kill a former top intelligence official.

The unproven suit was filed today in the U.S.

In it, Saad Aljabri alleges Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman wants him dead because he knows too much.

Aljabri fled to Toronto two years ago and is a permanent resident of Canada.

The veteran Saudi government official claims border agents thwarted the assassination plot involving a group of mercenaries known as the ``Tiger Squad.''

Neither the Saudi nor Canadian governments have commented on the allegations.
