Turkish official: New evidence writer slain in consulate

Turkish official: New evidence writer slain in consulate

The US state department said Prince Mohammed agreed there must be a thorough and transparent investigation into the journalist's disappearance.

The "Vanishing" of Jamal Khashoggi on October 2nd, 2018 inside the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey signalled the setting of the sun on the "strangler & emerging tyrant" of the Arabian Peninsula.

Butler, who planned to promote his new movie "Hunter Killer", about a standoff between a US submarine and Russian forces, said neither the USA government nor the Navy asked him not to visit the country.

"I feel personally offended", Graham said.

Just last week, Trump vowed to uncover the truth about what happened to Khashoggi and promised "severe punishment" for those responsible.

Also Tuesday, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told United States top diplomat Mike Pompeo that they are "strong and old allies", during talks in the kingdom on the missing journalist.

Trump spoke after a personal 20-minute phone call with Saudi King Salman and as the president dispatched his secretary of state to Riyadh for a face-to-face discussion with the king.

Washington Post Publisher and CEO Fred Ryan said the Saudi government "owes the Khashoggi family and the world a full and honest explanation of everything that happened to him", noting that Tuesday marked two weeks since the disappearance of the 59-year-old journalist. Another source told CNN the report is likely to shift blame from top Saudi officials, arguing the plot was carried out without official clearance and transparency while seeking to place blame on those immediately involved.

A Turkish foreign ministry source said the police would search the consulate again on Tuesday as well as the consul's residence, which Turkish television has previously reported could be linked to Khashoggi's disappearance.

Turkish officials believe Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate.

"We talk about the three-peat just because it's in front of us", two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry said. The rockets in last season's dramatic lost to future champion in seven games, taking the seventh game of "15".

Before leaving Riyadh, Pompeo told reporters that Saudi officials pledged they would hold any wrongdoers accountable, no matter how high their positions.

A Saudi delegation reportedly had entered the consulate one hour before the Turkish police arrived and appeared still to be inside as the search was conducted.

A report by CNN quoted two sources as saying that the Saudi side is preparing a report to acknowledge that the interrogation of Khashoggi had been meant to abduct him from Turkey, but went wrong and lead to his death. He said he has always been a staunch defender of Saudi Arabia on the Senate floor as a "good ally" of the United States.

Trump has taken a less aggressive stance toward the Saudis, suggesting on Monday after speaking with Saudi King Salman that perhaps "rogue killers" were behind the disappearance of Khashoggi, a sharp critic of the crown prince.

The country planned to release a report claiming that Khashoggi's death occurred two weeks ago, according to The New York Times.

A high-level Turkish official told The Associated Press that police found evidence there of Khashoggi's slaying, without elaborating. Trump said he didn't "want to get into (Salman's) mind", but he added, "it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers".

Turkish officials have told MEE that three of the 15-man hit squad allegedly sent by Riyadh to Istanbul for the operation came from MBS's personal bodyguard.

After his meeting with Pompeo, Turkey's foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, mocked the Saudi denials. This was another diplomatic slapped on Saudi Arabia's by allowing it's sacred building to be accessed in relating to crime!

However, US media are reporting that the Saudis may be preparing to admit that Mr Khashoggi died as a result of an interrogation that went wrong.

That could, like Trump's comments, seek to give the kingdom a way out of the global firestorm of criticism over Khashoggi's fate.
