US Urges Saudis to Reveal Location of Slain Journalist's Body

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

Turkish authorities are reportedly also investigating the possibility that Khashoggi's body was destroyed with acid after it was dismembered.

The Islamist group has branches in countries around the Middle East, and, to the Saudis, being a member made Khashoggi a terrorist.

Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who has positioned himself as a Saudi reformer, has denounced the murder as "repulsive" and strongly denied any involvement.

Khashoggi's fiancee Hatice Cengiz, who waited outside the consulate as the journalist entered to obtain documents for their upcoming marriage, said what was done to his body was "brutal, barbaric and ruthless".

WASHINGTON, Nov 1 - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday it would be a "handful more weeks" before the United States had enough evidence to impose sanctions in response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The murder has placed strain on the decades-old alliance between the United States and Saudi Arabia and tarnished the image of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's de facto ruler.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the U.S. he considered murdered writer Jamal Khashoggi to be a risky Islamist, media reports say. The Saudi attorney general then acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated murder.

Saudi Arabia has changed its account of what happened to Khashoggi.

The administration has remained adamant that Khashoggi's death will not jeopardise a $110bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia that was approved last May.

"We're going to find the fact pattern", he said.

Israeli officials confirmed the Post's report to the Ynet news site, saying Netanyahu urged officials in Washington not to allow the close relationship with the Saudi crown prince to be undermined by the incident. "The president said we will demand accountability for those who were involved in the commission of this heinous crime".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and Istanbul's chief prosecutor, Irfan Fidan, separately called on their Saudi counterparts to identify the collaborator this week. "He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years", the family said.

After Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, five high-ranking officials were dismissed, including bin Salman's media chief and the deputy head of the Saudi intelligence service.

USA activists have launched a petition, calling for a section of road near the Saudi embassy in Washington to be renamed Jamal Khashoggi Way.
