  • Murder of Khashoggi ‘premeditated’, says Saudi prosecutor

What was left unclear was who premeditated the killing.

A statement by Saudi Attorney General Saud al-Mojeb attributed the latest findings of a joint Turkish-Saudi investigation to information from Turkish counterparts. Then they said he died in a fistfight in the consulate.

However Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said there are "still questions that need answers" over the murder.

"Who gave them the orders?" he asked. "You admit they did it, but why are they not saying (where)?" "His family also wants to know and pay their final tribute".

However, even US President Donald Trump has cast doubt on MBS's claim he had nothing to do with Khashoggi's murder.

Turkish authorities briefed visiting Central Intelligence Agency chief Gina Haspel on the investigation into the killing and the evidence collected so far, a Turkish security official who was not authorized to speak to the media said on condition of anonymity.

A White House spokeswoman said Haspel would meet with Trump later today to brief him on the case.

Saudi phone calls, 'body double' after Khashoggi killing
Saudi Oil Minister Khaled al-Faleh told the TASS news agency that " there is no intention " of repeating the events of 1973. Now they say he died in a chokehold to prevent him from leaving the consulate to call for help.

According to Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet, Bryan told WWE management he will not compete at the event due to the Saudi government's reported involvement in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

WWE had faced scrutiny for planning an event in the country amid the ongoing investigation into the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman [MbS] runs everything in Saudi Arabia, and this action will not and never been without him knowing.

While Saudi officials have said the crown prince, also known as MBS, had no knowledge of the plan to kill Khashoggi, this has left many unconvinced. "They had the worst cover-up ever". "The cover-up was frightful".

News of the call appeared to calm growing speculation that Turkey was edging toward implicating the crown prince, whose ambitions for a modernized Saudi Arabia have been undermined by his penchant for making enemies at home and overseas.

On Wednesday, the prince called the killing "heinous" and "painful to all Saudis" in his first extensive public remarks on the topic. "Those responsible will be held accountable.in the end justice will prevail", he told a major investment forum in Riyadh.

Saudi Arabia's shifting narrative over what happened to Khashoggi has prompted an global outcry and left its main allies demanding answers.

"Because we are talking about a crime against a journalist, that violence against journalists has been highlighted as a key priority for the United Nations and for a number of state members", she also noted.

In a statement Sunday, the governments said attacks on journalists were unacceptable and "of utmost concern to our three nations". Trump said he planned to consult with Congress to devise a response. "They told us that he left the consulate", Jubeir said.

It's unclear whether USA intelligence agrees.

Khashoggi lived in self-imposed exile in the eastern USA state of Virginia.

Erdogan called it a "brutal" murder.

Torchia reported from Istanbul and Fraser reported from Ankara, Turkey.

However, Ali Shihabi, the head of the Arabia Foundation think tank, which is said to be close to the government, contradicts the Saudi narrative.

What happened with Khashoggi's body is still a mystery.

In the search for the body Jamal Khashoggi continues in the south forest of Istanbul and the refusal of Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul for Turkey Fire Fighters officials to search a well in the Consul General residence, the diplomatic vehicle seen combing the forest of Istanbul a day before Jamal Khashoggi's "choked-up" by the 15 killing "rogue elements" squad during "interrogation that gone wrong" in the consulate, the consulate diplomatic auto left behind in the underground auto park in Istanbul with a computer and clothes.
