Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Interviewed for ’60 Minutes’, ‘Frontline’ Fall Premieres

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman gave an interview that will air on the CBS program, 60 Minutes, on September 29, one of two features on the Saudi leader set to appear in the United States this fall.

The interview, with Norah O’Donnell, the anchor of the CBS Evening News, will be the Crown Prince’s second appearance on the program since he became Deputy Crown Prince in 2015. Crown Prince Mohammed gave his first interview with the program in March last year.

The interview took place Tuesday in Jeddah and will be broadcast on the 52nd season premiere of 60 Minutes.

The Crown Prince also sat for an interview for the season premiere of the PBS documentary show, Frontline, entitled, “The Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.”

In it, the Crown Prince discussed the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, telling host Martin Smith that the killing “happened under my watch…I get all the responsibility, because it happened under my watch,” but emphasized that it was without his knowledge.
