Turkey: Khashoggi murder ‘monstrously planned’, truth will emerge

Turkey: Khashoggi murder ‘monstrously planned’, truth will emerge

Prince Mohammed's government issued a statement late last week confirming Khashoggi died inside the Istanbul consulate but contending that his death was caused by a fistfight that started after an argument.

In yet another twist, new allegations linking Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been published by a Turkish newspaper.

The claim comes a day before Prince Mohammed's high-profile investment summit begins in Riyadh.

The source added that the Kingdom's government appreciates the distinguished co-operation of the Republic of Turkey under the leadership of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan whose efforts and co-operation importantly contributed to the investigation into the killing of Saudi citizen Jamal Khashoggi.

A auto belonging to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul was found in the Sultangazi district of the city, broadcaster NTV and other local media said on Monday, adding that police would search the vehicle.

Turkey will "never allow a cover-up" of the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, a senior official in Turkey's ruling party says. An hour later, another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold.

-Oct. 22: Newly leaked surveillance footage shows a man appearing to wear Khashoggi's clothes leaving the consulate after his killing there.

Saudi Arabia initially said Khashoggi left its Istanbul consulate on his own.

The crown prince has denied any involvement. "I want to see the rest of the documentation and know more about it. that's my sense".

Adel al-Jubeir's comments on Sunday to Fox News, describing the incident as murder, are some of the most direct to come from a Saudi official.

Palestinian officials say that in briefings with the Saudis, Abbas raised objections after concluding the plan would fall far short of his goal of establishing an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem. Iran is Saudi Arabia's archrival in the region. His presence in Istanbul consulate has not been explained, alongside numerous other questions that implicate Saudi royals in the killing.

-Oct. 18: A leaked surveillance photograph shows a member of Prince Mohammed's entourage during several trips overseas walked into the consulate just before Khashoggi vanished there.

Mutreb's name also matches that of a first secretary who once served as a diplomat at the Saudi Embassy in London, according to a 2007 list compiled by the British Foreign Office.

Trump said he didn't believe Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman should be replaced, adding he hasn't received information that he was responsible for Khashoggi's death and his father, King Salman "does not know about it".

Echoing Chancellor Merkel, Nahles said that the death of Khashoggi would have "significant consequences" for arms deliveries to the kingdom.

A Saudi friend of Khashoggi who was in frequent touch with him before his death told the AP that Salah Khashoggi had been under a travel ban and barred from leaving the kingdom since previous year as a result of his father's criticism of the government.
