Washington: The Saudi embassy in Washington on Tuesday dismissed suggestions the kingdom hacked the phone of Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos.
The 2018 intrusion into the device led to the release of intimate images of Amazon founder Bezos.
“Recent media reports that suggest the Kingdom is behind a hacking of Mr Jeff Bezos’ phone are absurd,” the Saudi Arabian embassy said on its Twitter account.
“We call for an investigation on these claims so that we can have all the facts out.”
Late Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that a United Nations investigation will report on Wednesday that Bezos’s cell phone was hacked.
Soon after the message was sent, a massive amount of data was extracted from Bezos’s phone, the Post said investigators concluded.
