  • Forest searched in hunt for Jamal Khashoggi’s body

Before the Saudi announcements, Trump said he might consider sanctions although he has also appeared unwilling to distance himself too much from the Saudi leadership.

President Donald Trump told reporters Saturday afternoon that he would be speaking with the crown prince very soon and is considering placing sanctions on Saudi Arabia, though preferably not on US sales of arms and other military equipment. The former high-level official who spoke with The Times said "there is no question" USA intelligence "knows what happened".

According to the latest version of the death, the government wanted to convince Khashoggi, who moved to Washington a year ago fearing reprisals for his views, to return to the kingdom as part of a campaign to prevent Saudi dissidents from being recruited by the country's enemies, the official said.

Reacting to the Saudi account, US President Donald Trump said it was credible. It comes despite the claims of Turkish officials who have said they have evidence of his killing, including an audio recording of Khashoggi's death.

While it fired officials close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia stopped short of implicating the heir-apparent of the world's largest oil exporter.

"To say that I am skeptical of the new Saudi narrative about Mr. Khashoggi is an understatement", said Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham. Khashoggi had been at the diplomatic office to seek paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancee. Turkish politicians pushed back Saturday.

"It's not possible for the Saudi administration to wiggle itself out of this crime if it's confirmed", said Numan Kurtulmus, deputy head of Turkey's Justice and Development Party.

"I think we're getting close to solving a very big problem", Trump said. The journalist wrote articles for The Washington Post, analyzing the situation in Saudi Arabia and the country's foreign policy and criticizing Riyadh. "We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said, adding that the Saudi public prosecutor had ordered the detention of 18 individuals, "the first step in a long journey". In the past, military exports by Berlin to Saudi have mostly consisted of patrol boats.

Turkish President: Khashoggi Murdered in Premeditated, Political Act
He later said the U.S. wanted Turkey to turn over any audio or video recording it had of Mr Khashoggi's murder "if it exists". He said the journalist was in contact with Saudi officials and he had a good relationship with many of them.


On Wednesday, crime scene investigation units arrived at the official residence of Saudi Consul General Mohammad al-Otaibi around 4.40 p.m. local time (1340GMT).

Meanwhile, the European Union has called the emerging details of Khashoggi's death "deeply troubling" and that a "continued thorough, credible and transparent investigation" is needed.

The state-run Anadolu Agency also quoted the minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, as saying that Turkey would share "with the world" the results of its investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance.

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir speaks exclusively to Fox News" Bret Baier on the "terrible mistake' that happened at the Saudi consulate in Turkey and says those responsible will be held accountable.

Asked if the team had smothered Khashoggi, the official said: "If you put someone of Jamal's age in this position, he would probably die". He was last seen going into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"Yet the brawl aggravated to lead to his death" and the suspects' attempt to "conceal and cover what happened", SPA reported.

Saudi Arabia has arrested 18 people whom they claim are connected with the incident.

The kingdom at the same time announced the firing of four top intelligence officials, including Maj.
