Khashoggi murdered, dismembered, taken out of Turkey: Askari


"The kingdom confirms that if any action is taken against it, it will respond to it by a greater action", SPA quoted an unnamed official as saying.

Media reports in the USA say Turkish officials have audio and video recordings that prove the Washington Post columnist was interrogated, tortured and killed by a Saudi security team inside the consulate, where he was seeking official documents before his upcoming wedding.

Jeff Flake of Arizona if at this point there is any other plausible explanation for why Khashoggi never came out of the consulate, other than the Turkish authorities' claim he was killed.

Khashoggi, journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, has been missing since he entered the consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

World leaders have demanded an explanation from Riyadh after U.S. and Turkish media reports that authorities believe Khashoggi, a legal resident, was killed in the consulate.

US-Saudi relations have grown even stronger since Trump took office.

However, Trump in the same interview said: "As of this moment, they deny it and they deny it vehemently".

Turkey believes the journalist was deliberately killed in the consulate and his body removed, but Saudi rejects those claims.

A Facebook fundraiser created for her parents, Tom and Linda King, had raised more than $132,000 as of Monday evening. Sumwalt said there was extensive damage to the front of the limo, mostly on the driver's side.

American lawmakers in both parties have been more critical of Saudi Arabia, with several suggesting officials in the kingdom could be sanctioned if they were found to be involved in Khashoggi's disappearance and alleged killing.

Perhaps the most under-the-bullseye in this ugly story is Jared Kushner, who has played host to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

"What has been circulating about orders to kill are lies and baseless allegations against the government of the kingdom, which is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with global laws and conventions", Prince Abdulaziz said.

"When we arrived at the consulate, he went right in", she said.

"We're gong to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment". "The Saudi Arabia government has been asked, the ambassador has been asked directly to bring information back". However, the Khashoggi affair has caused technology executives and the media, including the Financial Times, Bloomberg, and CNN, to pull out of an investment summit in Riyadh scheduled for next week. Trump promised to personally call Saudi Arabia's King Salman soon about "the bad situation in Turkey".

"There needs to be a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened, and - if relevant - to identify those bearing responsibility for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and ensure that they are held to account", the foreign ministers from the three countries said in a joint statement. That treaty includes a Saudi intent to purchase $110 billion in arms from the U.S.

"The recent disappearance of Saudi journalist and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi suggests that he could be a victim of a gross violation of internationally recognized human rights", almost two dozen senators explained in their letter to the president.
