Turkey Withheld Some Details On Khashoggi's Death, Rep. Schiff Says

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has requested the extradition of 18 Saudi officials suspected of murdering journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

Saudi Arabia first denied any involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance on October 2, but a Saudi official eventually attributed his death to a botched attempt to return him to the kingdom.

Pompeo also said that the State Department is working with the Treasury Department on the applicability of global Magnitsky sanctions to the Saudis responsible.

"We call on the Sri Lankan government to condemn Khashoggi's killing and repression of Saudi journalists and dissidents, and raise these issues with the Saudi government", the FMM said.

He added: "Whoever thought of that idea I think is in big trouble - and they should be in big trouble".

Over the past year, there have been several reports of clandestine meetings between Saudi and Israeli officials, including between the top statesmen: Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's de-facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

In a speech to the European Parliament, Mr Tusk said he expected member states and institutions to avoid any "ambiguous game".

Hariri has maintained good relations with Saudi Arabia despite the crisis that erupted following his surprise resignation from Riyadh months ago.

"Haspel, who departed for a secret trip to Turkey on Monday, heard the audio during her visit, according to people familiar with her meetings", said the USA daily.

In his attempt to criticise the Khashoggi murder without criticising Riyadh, Trump worded his statement to nearly sound like he was unhappy with how the killing and the subsequent cover-up was executed.

"There are now those who are trying to take advantage of the painful situation to create divisions between the kingdom and Turkey", he said.

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday ridiculed Riyadh's response as "one of the worst cover-ups" in history.

Prince Mohammed on Wednesday made his first public comments since his government admitted Khashoggi had been killed.

Saudi Arabia's explanation has been questioned by leaders in the United States and Europe. Speaking at an investment forum he was hosting in Riyadh, the crown prince called the killing a "heinous crime" but offered no new information on what happened.

The sources say President Erdogan has a copy of the Skype audio but is refusing to hand it over to the US. Saud al-Qahtani was quoted as giving the instructions "bring me the head of the dog", after the two men traded insults.
