Johnson Also Chatted With Saudi Prince On WhatsApp

The Telegraph reports:

Boris Johnson has been in communication with Saudi Arabia’s crown prince over WhatsApp, multiple former UK government figures have told The Telegraph, raising major security concerns in light of the Jeff Bezos hack.

One source said they were “99 per cent sure” Mr Johnson sent messages over the platform to Mohammed bin Salman while others noted he made a habit of handing out his private number to many world leaders while foreign secretary.

It raises serious questions about potential vulnerabilities given MBS, as Prince Mohammed is known, is now being accused of personal involvement in the hacking Amazon founder Mr Bezos’s phone via WhatsApp.
