They say it may have been hacked after receiving a file sent from Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's WhatsApp account. Bezos owns The Washington Post and is the founder of Amazon. At a time when Saudi Arabia was supposedly investigating the killing of Saudi critic and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and prosecuting those it deemed responsible, "it was clandestinely waging a massive online campaign against Mr. Bezos and Amazon targeting him principally as the owner of The Washington Post," the experts said in their statement.
