A US judge has dismissed a case against Saudi Arabia's Mohammed bin Salman for orchestrating the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying the crown prince was entitled to sovereign immunity despite "credible allegations" that he was involved in the murder.

Judge John Bates, a US district court judge with a long history of presiding over cases involving national security, acknowledged "uneasiness" in making the decision, but said that his hands were in effect tied by the Biden administration's recent recommendation that Prince Mohammed be given immunity.

The decision to dismiss the charges, which were brought by Khashoggi's fiancee Hatice Cengiz, and Dawn, a pro-democracy group founded by the murdered journalist, likely marks the end of efforts to hold the future Saudi king accountable for the 2018 murder.
