CNN shows 'body double' of Khashoggi in Istanbul

  • Think Trump is erratic now? Just wait until after the midterm

Trump has repeatedly said over the last week that he opposes any effort to impede more than $100 billion in USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but that he would consider sanctions on the kingdom.

It's seen as a blow to Saudi Arabia and its 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"That is unacceptable in any government", al-Jubeir said on Sunday. "Unfortunately, a huge and grave mistake was made and I assure them that those responsible will be held accountable for this".

Kushner, who speaks regularly to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, said he told the leader "just to be transparent, to be fully transparent", but that "we'll see" if he follows that advice. At the same time, he denied that the crown prince - the country's de facto ruler - was involved.

Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.

Turkish officials say the Turkish president and his American counterpart have spoken over the phone and discussed the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"The government is in agreement that we will not approve further arms exports for the moment because we want to know what happened", Altmaier told ZDF broadcaster. We are determined to find out all the facts. It's listed on the stock market and has two main shareholders: the Al Ahli Capital Fund and Al Ahli Capital Fund 4, which are operated by the National Commercial Bank, a prominent Saudi bank mainly owned by the Saudi government.


The body double was one of 15 Saudis sent to carry out and cover up the assassination.

Investigators say the aim was to fake evidence Mr Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed.

In the wake of the global scandal surrounding the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, Vice is reviewing its contract with Saudi Arabian publishing group SRMG, an industry source told Variety on Monday.

Paul said that he doesn't believe that "arms should ever be seen as a jobs program", adding that the Saudis are using USA arms in the war in Yemen where civilians are being killed.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he will reveal details about the Turkish investigation of the alleged murder of the journalist on Tuesday. However, pro-government newspapers have been leaking information about Khashoggi's killing, apparently with the help of Turkish security forces. "His blood should lead to the prosecution of the perpetrators of this crime, who are the same perpetrators of the crime against millions of people in Yemen - that is the Saudi kingdom", said Karman, journalist and a leader of the Arab Spring in Yemen in 2011. But it was a big first step, it was a good first step.

Erdogan and US President Donald Trump had agreed in telephone talks that the circumstances leading to Khashoggi's death "should be clarified in all its aspects". He had suggested last week that "rogue killers" might have been responsible for Khashoggi's death, a comment critics called an effort to play down the crisis.
