Jeff Bezos’ security consultant accused the Saudi government of gaining unauthorised access to the Amazon CEO’s phone, as part of an effort to harm the world’s rich­est man. In an opinion arti­cle in The Daily Beast on Saturday, Gavin de Becker, Mr. Bezos’s security chief, alleged that the Saudis wanted to hurt Mr. Bezos because he owns The Washington Post.
