Saudis dissolved Khashoggis body in acid after murder: Erdogan advisor

Mohammed bin Salman 'told White House' Khashoggi was a dangerous Islamist Saudi crown prince told White House slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a Muslim extremist

But, the statement said, the Saudis had not answered three questions the Turkish side posed - namely, where Khashoggi's body is; whether Saudi investigators had uncovered evidence about the planning of his killing; and the identity of the reported "local collaborator".

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood". After initially denying Khashoggi had been killed, the Saudi government claimed he died in an unplanned "rogue operation".

That's according to the official statement from Istanbul's chief prosecutor.

WASHINGTON, Nov 1 - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday it would be a "handful more weeks" before the United States had enough evidence to impose sanctions in response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The United States is urging Saudi Arabia to locate the body of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi and return it to his family as soon as possible.

A Thursday report in The Washington Post said Netanyahu told Trump administration officials that bin Salman was a key strategic partner and a linchpin of the alliance against Iranian encroachment in the region.

Saudi Arabia has changed its account of what happened to Khashoggi.


The crown prince stated Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, prior to Saudi Arabia formally acknowledging it was responsible for the journalist's death. That was seven days after the dissident disappeared in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and long before the crown prince acknowledged that Saudi agents killed him.

Exactly one month after the disappearance and the subsequent murder of the Washington Post columnist inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the USA has yet to issue the "severe punishment" that Donald Trump had promised if the regime's involvement in the journalist's death were confirmed.

Mr Khashoggi's family vehemently denied that he was in any way unsafe or a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

But we have significant interests related to Saudi Arabia.

Some claimed the body was wrapped up in a rug to be transported from the scene, while others said the hit squad carried the dismembered corpse away in several bags.

He entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul a month ago to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage, but never left. Khashoggi, once close to the Saudi royal family, moved to the Washington, D.C. area in recent years.

Turkey, for its part, said Khashoggi was strangled the moment he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the city's chief prosecutor said on Wednesday, adding that it was a premeditated murder.
