Khashoggi murder 'must concern us all': Mattis to regional forum

Khashoggi murder 'must concern us all': Mattis to regional forum

Mattis made no move to directly blame Saudi and did not refer to the calls from members of Congress to cut arms sales to Saudi Arabia or impose sanctions on the kingdom.

She said she had not been contacted by Saudi officials and was unlikely to go to Saudi Arabia for any funeral there if Khashoggi's missing body is found.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan urged Saudi Arabia on Friday to disclose who gave the order to kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as well the location of his body, saying Turkey had more information about the case than it has shared so far.

Saudi Arabia originally said Khashoggi had walked out of the consulate October 2, before offering various other narratives that President Donald Trump called "one of the worst in the history of coverups".

It's unclear whether US intelligence agrees. "But beyond all else, who gave the order?"Turkey's chief prosecutor officially requested that 18 Saudis be extradited to Turkey to face charges of deliberate murder in the death of Mr. Khashoggi, and the Foreign Ministry has passed the request to Saudi Arabia, Turkish media reported on Friday.Mr. Khashoggi's Turkish fiancé, Hatice Cengiz, said in a television interview Friday that he had been relaxed and hopeful when he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to pick up a document that would allow him to marry".

The Saudi government has said it arrested and would itself punish 18 people for what it described as a rogue operation by officials who killed Mr Khashoggi in the consulate.

"I greatly admire those who, even before they know anything, say "We won't sell any more weapons"!", the French leader said in an apparent reference to Germany.

There was no immediate comment from Saudi officials, but Human Rights Watch Middle East director Sarah Leah Whitson told AFP they were apparently allowed to leave after the ban was lifted.

For Erdogan, who has ruled Turkey since 2003, the crime has provided grounds for pushing back against Saudi Arabia, one of its regional rivals, and weakening the credibility of the crown prince.

2 bound bodies found in Hudson River were missing sisters
NY police Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea told The Washington Post "they were not in the water that long". Police sketches of the two women found taped together in the Hudson River on October 24, 2018.

"We shall of course confer within the European Union to work out what future steps we shall take", she added.

In a speech in Ankara, Erdogan said the Saudi prosecutor would arrive on Sunday and called on Riyadh to reveal who ordered the killing and the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body.

Turkey shares information and evidences regarding the case with those who wants to get detailed information as part of worldwide law, the minister said.

According to al-Mujeb, Saudi prosecution authorities are continuing their investigations in light of the information received from Turkey.

A man with his hands painted red wore a mask of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"The individuals are Saudi nationals, they're detained in Saudi Arabia, the investigation is in Saudi Arabia and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia", he said at the Bahrain summit.

The US-based Saudi government critic died in the consulate in Istanbul.

Khashoggi and Cengiz had recently furnished an apartment for themselves in Istanbul. Salah is a dual U.S. -Saudi citizen who had previously been restricted from leaving and who was photographed earlier this week meeting Salman and Mohammed and receiving their condolences. But his broader mention of the matter toward the end of his speech underscores the serious national security ramifications the incident poses for relations with a key USA ally.
