WWE explain why they're proceeding with Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan addressing parliament in Ankara on Tuesday

Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor said on Thursday the murder of Khashoggi was premeditated, reversing previous official statements that the killing was unintended. When he screamed, one of the men put him in a chokehold, killing him accidentally, they had said.

Did Jamal Khashoggi know more about Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman [MbS] secret and dirty dealings?

"Saudi Arabia is carrying out all of the legal procedures to investigate and present the guilty to trial", the crown prince told his audience.

Cavusoglu's comments came days after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said all those behind the murder should be brought to justice and tried in Istanbul.

Saudi officials initially denied having anything to do with Khashoggi's disappearance after he entered the consulate on October 2, before changing the official account to say an internal investigation suggested Khashoggi was accidentally killed in a botched operation to return him to the kingdom.

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. After all, the controversy was really kicked into high gear well into WWE's plans for the Crown Jewel event - most of the card was already announced.

Trump campaigns for Ted Cruz in Texas
But the approach offers both risks and rewards. "On Election Day in 2016, I really had a choice to make". Vice President Mike Pence and Donald Trump , Jr., have already traveled to Texas to support Cruz.

So far, three high-ranking officials have been dismissed from their roles in the court following a preliminary investigation into the murder, which Saudi Arabia authorities claim was carried out in a "rogue operation". Should global relations with Saudi Arabia continue to worsen over the next few months, WWE could very likely find themselves in the exact same position in 2019.

The well was emptied and the water was taken for analysis to determine whether body parts were dumped there, pro-government Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak reported.

Through a steady stream of leaks to Turkish and foreign media, Turkish officials have mounted a compelling case that shows the Saudi agents had planned to kill Khashoggi, dismember him and dispose of his remains. The image, obtained by state television TRT and other media on Wednesday, shows a black auto with a diplomatic license plate at an entrance to Belgrade Forest.

The Washington Post and Reuters, citing unnamed officials, say Haspel listened to audio evidence of the killing during her trip.

Officials have told the Associated Press that investigators are searching those two locations for the journalist's body.
