WWE Confirms Crown Jewel to Remain in Saudi Arabia Despite Extraordinary Controversy

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was the victim of an "extrajudicial execution" committed by the Saudi state, a United Nations expert said Thursday, calling for an global investigation.

Turkish investigators continue to hunt for clues to the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body.

Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey's Istanbul on October 2 to obtain documentation for his upcoming marriage, but he never left the place.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Saudi officials made "reconnaissance" trips to the forest as well as the city of Yalova a day before Khashoggi was killed.

One source also suggested his remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general's Istanbul home - located around 500 metres away from the consulate.

One, his hands painted red, wore a mask depicting the face of Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Meanwhile, world leaders continue to urge the Saudi authorities to clarify the circumstances of the journalist's killing.

The Future Investment Initiative (FII), nicknamed "Davos in the Desert", was overshadowed by worldwide outcry over the Saudi regime's alleged involvement in the journalist's death.

"I think that time has come to restructure the sectors of the national security in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in line with the economic sectors' growth in the kingdom", he said in his address to the Future Investment Initiative.

Several U.S. government officials, including Senators Chris Murphy and Richard Blumenthal (from CT, where WWE is based), Bob Menendez (New Jersey), Lindsay Graham (South Carolina) and Chris Coons (Delaware) had encouraged WWE to postpone the event or reconsider its relationship with Saudi Arabia.

For their part, the Trump administration and the USA defence industry are scrambling to save the few actual deals in a much-touted US$110 billion arms package for Saudi Arabia. Al-Mojeb's office said last Friday that Saudi officials were responsible for the death of Khashoggi, who they said died in a fistfight - later saying it was from a chokehold after he raised his voice in the consulate.

Salah Khashoggi, who holds dual U.S. -Saudi citizenship and had thus far been under a travel ban, departed Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

As the investigation into Khashoggi's alleged murder has developed, the US government has taken some action.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took part in the meeting, the State Department said. 'The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in five years will be completely different'.

The report said King Salman and Prince Mohammed offered their condolences to the family of the Saudi journalist.

How Western allies deal with Riyadh will hinge on the extent to which they believe responsibility for Khashoggi's death lies directly with the prince and the Saudi authorities.
