  • Saudi Prince Had To Know Of The Plot In Journalist Case Say Experts

The secretary of state noted that the Saudi leaders, while denying knowledge of anything that occurred inside the consulate, had committed to accountability "including for Saudi Arabia's senior leaders or senior officials".

"The president has to put this fire out".

"We remain very troubled by the disappearance of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi", the statement said.

Sabah's report does not name the man in the CCTV image, but he has been previously identified as Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a reported bodyguard and regular member of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's entourage.

"What kind of reform is that?" he asked, suggesting bin Salman could be replaced by one of his brothers who would presumably be "less reckless".

"I think we have to find out what happened first", Trump said.

He said, "Each of those meetings, I stressed the importance of them conducting a complete investigation of the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and they made a commitment, they said they would do that".

The Sabah newspaper's report showed the man also later outside the Saudi consul general's home, checking out of a Turkish hotel as a large suitcase stood by his side, and leaving Turkey on October 2.

Antibiotic-resistant salmonella outbreak includes Kentucky — CDC
The CDC says laboratory evidence shows raw chicken products from a variety of sources were contaminated with SalmonellaInfantis. The CDC says 2 to 3 people have been affected by this in Virginia. "It's been spread out over a long period of time", he said.


His demand came as he expressed support for Saudi Arabia, a long-time USA ally, and said he expects its investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance would be completed by the end of the week.

Mr Khashoggi is a U.S. resident and columnist for the Washington Post newspaper who went into self-imposed exile past year after reportedly being warned by Saudi officials to stop criticising the crown prince's policies.

"As a result, Arab governments have been given free rein to continue silencing the media at an increasing rate", Khashoggi wrote.

"This guy has got to go", said Sen.

Turkish government sources have claimed that Mr Khashoggi - a critic of the government in Riyadh - was murdered during a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago.

"Through the creation of an independent global forum, isolated from the influence of nationalist governments spreading hate through propaganda, ordinary people in the Arab world would be able to address the structural problems their societies face".

Asked about a recording described by the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, Trump said, "We've asked for it, if it exists".

Khashoggi went to the consulate on October 2 to get documents for his upcoming marriage to a Turkish woman while his fiancee waited outside. He never emerged, with Hatice Cengiz raising the alarm over the disappearance of her fiancée. Western diplomats suspect that the kingdom will also compensate Turkey for its willingness to launch a joint investigation on Khashoggi's disappearance - a payback that could come in the form of large-scale debt relief, strategic buyouts or other arrangements that boost Turkey's ailing economy.
