Saudi foreign minister commits to ‘comprehensive’ probe of Jamal Khashoggi’s killing

Saudi foreign minister commits to ‘comprehensive’ probe of Jamal Khashoggi’s killing

Reports suggest Khashoggi's body was cut up and found in the garden of the Saudi Consul General in Istanbul.

Some top U.S. lawmakers turned their ire on the crown prince and said they believed he ordered the killing. Salah, who has reportedly been under a travel ban since a year ago, stared coldly into the eyes of the man accused of plotting his father's murder as they shook hands. London, Ontario-based General Dynamics Land Systems, a unit of US -based General Dynamics Corp., manufactures armored vehicles under a contract with Saudi Arabia signed by the Canadian government in 2014.

Leaked CCTV footage shows a man appearing to be dressed as the journalist Jamal Khashoggi leaving the Saudi consulate in Istanbul shortly after he was killed. However, Erdogan did not produce the secret audio recordings that some officials have said provide proof of how Khashoggi was killed.

Jamal Khashoggi was a journalist who was known for being critical of the Saudi government and royal family. We are determined to find out all the facts.

Erdogan vowed Turkey would continue in its pursuit of the truth.

Hinting at the possibility that this could target Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman himself, Mr Hunt said: 'When we have full accountability for the crimes that have been committed, which have been described by the Saudis as murder, then that accountability must extend to the people who gave the order for the crimes to be committed, not just those who were there on the ground'.

"Saudi Arabia's reforms are important and they are worth supporting", he told Reuters news agency.

He said 18 people had been arrested - three from the consulate and a further 15 who are believed to have travelled to Istanbul to carry out the killing.


CIA Director Gina Haspel headed to Turkey on Monday to address the investigation of Khashoggi's death, two sources confirmed to ABC News.

The last few hours of Khashoggi's life have been revealed in images published by Turkish media outlets.

"First it was stated that the Saudi journalist had left the consulate, now it is stated that he did die".

Prior to Jubeir's interview, a senior Saudi official laid out a version that itself contradicted earlier explanations.

Saudi authorities have shifted their narrative on what happened to Khashoggi, now saying he died as a result of a fistfight, after weeks of denying any involvement in his disappearance. Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. "When we arrived at the consulate, he went right in.

To cover up such a savagery would hurt the human conscience", he said.

She also said Khashoggi saw himself as a "lonely patriot" who was "using his pen for the good of his country".

In the Commons, Jeremy Corbyn said "condemnation is not enough" from the Government. "Tyrants eventually pay for their sins".
