Saudi media on Monday echoed the kingdom's hard-line threat of retaliation for any sanctions over the disappearance and alleged death of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, as demands grew for boycotts of the same global brands once courted by the kingdom.
Khashoggi's alleged murder at the hands of Saudi operatives - something the kingdom has vehemently denied - is just the latest in a series of events raising the temperature of the kingdom's diplomatic relationship with many Western nations.
Saudi Arabia is threatening to give 5-year prison terms and heavy fines to anyone caught spreading "fake news" online, a warning to those discussing the suspected murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi vanished after entering a Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, igniting a global firestorm over the circumstances of his disappearance. Germany, Britain and France issued a joint statement over the weekend expressing "grave concern" and calling for a credible investigation to ensure those responsible for the disappearance "are held to account".
Mr Khashoggi has not been seen since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul over a week ago after apparently giving his fiancee his iPhone, which the watch was synced with.
The warning from the world's top oil exporter came after a turbulent day on the Saudi stock exchange, which plunged as much as 7 percent at one point.
