The Saudi public prosecutor sys the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was premeditated, according to state TV.

TASI, the largest Arab bourse, is 8.4 percent higher on the year.

In a speech timed to coincide with the start of the three-day global business conference, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan rejected the Saudi narrative and said Khashoggi's murder was planned in Riyadh.

In this photo released by Saudi Press Agency, SPA, Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman addresses the Future Investment Initiative conference, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Oct. 24, 2018. The recent barrage of phone calls between Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman [MbS] and Turkey President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan signifies what?

"The Company is continuing to monitor ongoing developments in the region, and there can be no assurances in this regard", WWE said.

During the visit to Turkey, Haspel had the opportunity to review evidence gathered in the course of the investigation into the murder of Khashoggi, the Daily Sabah reported Wednesday, citing sources close to investigators.

"Even Saudi Arabia itself has admitted that the crime was premeditated and involved state officials", Agnes Callamard, United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions, said during a press conference.

While the Trump administration had inititally defended the kingdom's explanation for how Khashoggi was killed, on Tuesday, US President Donald Trump said Saudi authorities had staged the "worst cover-up ever".


President Trump has been briefed by CIA Director Gina Haspel on the latest in the US investigation into how Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

The crown prince and King Salman earlier invited Khashoggi's son Salah and brother Sahel to the Yamama Palace in Riyadh to offer condolences.

Turkish media have also published a security camera image allegedly showing a vehicle belonging to the Saudi Consulate "scouting" a forest in the outskirts of Istanbul before Khashoggi was killed.

After weeks of denials, the kingdom finally confirmed Khashoggi's death on October 20, claiming he died in a fistfight.

Turkey has long dismissed the Saudi assertion of an accidental death and has pressed the kingdom to concede that Khashoggi was deliberately targeted for death.

On Wednesday, the prince called the killing "heinous" and "painful to all Saudis" in his first extensive public remarks on the topic.

Vince noted in his opening statement that the company is looking forward to Evolution and Crown Jewel this weekend, but he did not name Saudi Arabia.

According to Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih "There were more than 25 deals signed worth $56 billion", adding that US companies accounted for most of those contracts.
