Turkey: Highest level of Saudi govt ordered writer's slaying

Crown Prince meets American Evangelical delegation

Khashoggi disappeared on October 2 after entering Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul for marriage formalities as his fiancee waited outside.

Yasin Aktay, a ruling party adviser to Erdogan, told The Associated Press on Friday that "there can be no other formula" to explain why Khashoggi's remains have not been found a month after he was killed.

"We knew that Khashoggi's body was dismembered", Mr Aktay said.

A member of Sri Lankan web journalist association holds a placard during a protest condemning the murder of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi in front of the Saudi Embassy in Colombo, Sri Lanka October 25, 2018.

His comments follow an admission by the Saudi government that its agents planned and carried out the murder of Khashoggi at its consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

"According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it".

"Though Riyadh has detained 18 suspects, it is deeply concerning that no action has been taken against the Saudi consul general, who lied through his teeth to the media and fled Turkey shortly afterward", Erdogan said. "The treatment of the body is a separate crime".

Netanyahu said that for the stability of the region, it is vital that Saudi Arabia remains stable.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who is widely believed to be the one who ordered the killing - as implicitly suggested by Erdogan in his Friday op-ed - has reportedly told the U.S. he considered Khashoggi to be a risky Islamist.

Prince Harry's fifth visit to Australia coincided with the Invictus Games in Sydney, which he founded for war-wounded veterans. She spoke in Fiji about her own struggles to afford university in the United States, arguing the case for open education.

Although their USA visas have been revoked, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it would be a "handful more weeks" before the U.S. knew enough to impose sanctions on individuals involved in Khashoggi's killing.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said Khashoggi was "brutally murdered" in a Saudi operation that involved more than a dozen men.

The murder has strained the decades-old alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia, with Trump calling it "one of the worst cover-ups in history".

Turkey - which according to the Committee to Protect Journalists was the world's leading jailer of journalists in 2017 - has emerged as an unlikely advocate for truth over Khashoggi's killing, which it has used to pressure regional rival Saudi Arabia.

"We aren't here for a short-term goal", Bachmann told CBN News. "As a result of our efforts, the world has learned that Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated", Erdogan wrote in The Post.

The Saudi crown prince accused of having a hand in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi reportedly told White House representatives the Washington Post journalist was a Muslim extremist.

Germany and Switzerland have vowed to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia until the case is clarified.

US President Donald Trump also suggested the same day that "rogue killers" could be responsible for the Saudi journalist's disappearance after a personal phone call in which Trump said Saudi Arabia's King Salman strongly denied any knowledge of what happened to Jamal Khashoggi. "At the same time, President Trump has made very clear not only do we have important commercial relationships, but important strategic relationships, national security relationships with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and we intend to make sure that those relationships remain intact".
