  • Evidence Shows Khashoggi Was 'Brutally Murdered,' Turkish President Erdogan Says

On Saturday, Saudi Arabia publicly said the insider turned critic had died after an altercation at the consulate.

In contrast with reports citing Turkish officials, it claimed the death was an accident and the result of a fistfight during a rogue operation unknown to the Saudi leadership and intelligence services. "It was carried out poorly and the cover-up was one of the worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups", Trump said, according to The Hill.

"We have maintained since the beginning that the Khashoggi murder was premeditated", a senior Turkish official told The Washington Post shortly after the Saudi announcement on Thursday.

Saudi national Mr Khashoggi was killed after going to his country's consulate in Istanbul for a divorce certificate.

Trudeau says his government is looking at the contract with Saudi Arabia to see what can be done.

The US leader, who sent his Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel to Istanbul to discuss the issue, is expecting a full report in the coming days.

Turkish police searched the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, and the consul general's residence, as well as hunting for evidence in an Istanbul forest.

Speaking to attendees at Saudi Arabia's highly-publicized Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, MBS called the murder a "heinous crime". I believe it is painful for every human in the world.

Trump called the Times report incorrect on Thursday, and dismissed it as "long and boring". It's unclear how foreign countries could tap the president's cell phone.

According to Assiri, members of Khashoggi's family have been barred from travelling since the journalist left Saudi Arabia past year.

He said: "The US will remain a key part of the Saudi economy because the interests that tie us are bigger than what is being weakened by the failed boycotting campaign of the conference".

Hours earlier US President Donald Trump, in his toughest comments yet, told the Wall Street Journal that the crown prince bore ultimate responsibility for the operation that led to Khashoggi's killing.

The meeting comes after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's much anticipated "naked truth" speech on Tuesday, in which he shared little new information but dismissed much of the Saudi explanation of the murder.

The United Kingdom said it will revoke the visas of the Saudi Arabian suspects involved in the murder.

Erdogan said on Tuesday that a 15-person team came from Riyadh to kill Khashoggi, including by carrying out reconnaissance outside Istanbul and deactivating security cameras at the consulate.

Saudi Arabia's account of Khashoggi's fate has not been consistent.
