    Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman — also known as MBS — talked in 2014 about using a "poison ring" to kill the country's then-king so that his father could take the crown, a former Saudi spy chief said.

    Saad al-Jabri, a former Saudi intelligence chief who fled the country in 2017, told CBS's "60 Minutes" in an interview aired Sunday about a meeting that he said took place in 2014 between MBS and the then-head of Saudi intelligence, Mohammed bin Nayef.

    (MBS was a Saudi minister at the time; he became crown prince of Saudi Arabia in 2017 after ousting Mohammed bin Nayef from the role.)

    Al-Jabri said that, in the meeting, MBS bragged that he could kill King Abdullah in order to leave his father Salman the throne.

    "I want to assassinate King Abdullah. I get a poison ring from Russia," MBS had said, according to al-Jabri.

    Al-Jabri said that Saudi intelligence was not sure if MBS was telling the truth or not, but said "we took it seriously." Al-Jabri also said the meeting was recorded, and that he knows where two copies of the tape are.

    King Abdullah died in 2015, aged 91. He had been suffering from a lung infection, and there were no reports suggesting he was poisoned.

    Crown Prince Salman, Abdullah's half-brother and MBS's father, was then named the new king.

    Al-Jabri has accused MBS of plotting to kill him in Canada, where he is now based, and called MBS a "psychopath" and a "killer."

    He sued MBS in a Washington, DC, court last August, alleging the prince sent a hit squad to kill him in Toronto in October 2018.
