Murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body parts found

Turkish leader says Khashoggi's killing was planned in advance

The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold U.S. citizenship.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the effort to hide the killing of Washington Post journalist at a Saudi consulate in Turkey was the "worst cover up ever".

He described it as a "political murder" but stopped short of blaming the crown prince, saying: "Intelligence and security institutions have evidence showing the murder was planned". Saudi Ambassador to the U.S. Prince Khalid bin Salman, a brother of the crown prince, wrote October 8 that Khashoggi had left, and that claims the kingdom "have detained him or killed him are absolutely false, and baseless".

Saudi authorities have detained 18 people in connection with Khashoggi's death, which officials say was accidental despite Turkish allegations that Khashoggi was intentionally killed.

The U.N. investigation could also serve as the basis for a criminal case under the U.N. Convention against Torture, to which Saudi Arabia is a signatory.

Mr Erdogan said he believed King Salman was not aware of the plot to kill Khashoggi. "So they will listen to those stakeholders and shareholders", Hamod said.

But as the day progressed, the crowds thinned in the main auditorium even as Prince Mohammed appeared alongside Jordan's King Abdullah II, and organisers frequently changed the agenda of the event in a sign speakers were dropping out.

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday that he was "not satisfied with what I've heard", regarding Khashoggi's death.

Finally, Khashoggi's children, some of whom are USA citizens, and his employer, The Washington Post, may be able to bring civil claims in the United States.




He declined to say whether he had seen any intelligence that linked the Saudi crown prince to the killing.

Rather than cancel their participation altogether, some companies sent mid-level executives to keep lines of communication and business open with Saudi Arabia.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Wednesday discussed the joint efforts to uncover all aspects of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to a Turkish presidential source.

During his visit to Saudi Arabia in May 2017, Trump signed an agreement with the Saudis for them to purchase Dollars 110 billion of United States weapons, although so far only USD 43 billion of that has been detailed.

I'll know, I think, everything in a very short period of time.

Erdogan said a team of 15 Saudis flew to Istanbul early in the morning on October 2, including a forensic expert and intelligence officers. "He's running things and so if anybody were going to be, it would be him", Trump told the newspaper.

Pompeo said the State Department is revoking the visas of those suspected to have been involved in the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

In response to a question by Japanese correspondent, Iran's foreign minister evaluated the global reaction to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi late, but severe. Look, Saudi Arabia's been a really great ally.
