Saudi Crown Prince congratulates Trump on historic step

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman

Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman congratulated U.S. President Donald Trump on the killing of Islamic State’s leader, describing the operation as a historic step in the fight against extremism, Saudi state TV Ekhbariya reported on Tuesday.

World leaders welcomed his death, but they and security experts warned that the group, which carried out atrocities against religious minorities and horrified most Muslims, remained a security threat in Syria and beyond.
