Khashoggi’s body was ‘dissolved’ after murder - Erdogan advisor

Mohammed bin Salman 'told White House' Khashoggi was a dangerous Islamist

Turkey pressed Saudi authorities on Thursday to tell them the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body, which has not been recovered.

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a unsafe person in any way possible".

The Saudis have presented shifting accounts around the death of the 59-year-old journalist, initially denying any knowledge before arguing that a group of rogue operators, many of whom belong to bin Salman's inner circle, were responsible.

While insisting the United States did not condone Khashoggi's killing, the top USA diplomat said the United States had "deep and long-term strategic relationships" with Saudi Arabia and "we intend to make sure that those relationships remain intact".

People hold posters picturing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and lightened candles during a gathering outside the Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul, on October 25, 2018.

LONDON-A month after the killing of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi, the Trump administration has made a decision to stand by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, having concluded that he is nearly certain to retain his grip on power despite a growing worldwide consensus that he bears responsibility for the killing, officials familiar with the deliberations said.

The murder has placed strain on the decades-old alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia and tarnished the image of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the ultra-conservative kingdom's de facto ruler. Ankara maintains that there is strong proof that the killing of the Saudi journalist at the Saudi consulate on October 2 came as a result of a pre-planned operation by a squad of hitmen rather than a spontaneous fist-fight incident, as claimed by Riyadh.

The FBI said the package was "similar in appearance" to the 14 pipe bombs that prompted a federal investigation last week. The FBI said that the bomb squad is responding to the package found on Pryor Street in downtown Atlanta.

A senior Israeli official also told Channel 10, "What happened with Khashoggi's murder is very problematic, and that's an understatement".

His reported comments were made while Saudi Arabia was still claiming that Mr Khashoggi had walked safely out of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, a story that has now changed several times. "The president said we will demand accountability for those who were involved in the commission of this heinous crime".

Turkey, for its part, said Khashoggi was strangled the moment he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the city's chief prosecutor said on Wednesday, adding that it was a premeditated murder.

Turkey has steered away from publicly blaming Saudi Arabia for the killing.

"We don't know where the body is", he said.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino on Thursday called for Khashoggi's remains to be located and returned to his family for burial as soon as possible.
