Saudi Arabia says it is a beacon of light fighting ‘dark’ Iran

Evidence indicates Khashoggi killing was premeditated – Saudi attorney general

The Saudi prosecution had received information from Turkish investigators suggesting that the suspects meant to kill Khashoggi, and would continue its probe in light of those findings, the official Saudi Press Agency said on Thursday.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Saudi Arabia must disclose who gave order to murder the journalist, and that they must reveal the location of the body.

Turkey said it believed a hit squad of Saudi nationals had travelled to Istanbul with the sole goal of killing Khashoggi, a former member of the Saudi elite who became critical of the current government's administration in his country.

Turkey alleges a 15-member hit squad was sent to Istanbul to kill the journalist, a onetime Saudi insider who became an outspoken critic of Crown Prince Mohammed in columns for The Washington Post.

Mr Trump also said it was "possible" Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman did not know about the killing. After weeks of denying knowledge of whereabouts, and changing its story a number of times, Riyadh has said his killing was premeditated.

The murder has sparked global outrage and mushroomed into a crisis for the world's top oil exporting country and Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de facto ruler.

After Cengiz wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post, pleading with President Trump and his wife Melania for help, Trump told reporters on October 10 that Cengiz would "be most likely coming to the White House" "fairly quickly".

Saudi Arabia has received information from Turkey that those responsible for the October 2 murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul had planned the crime beforehand. Saudi prosecutors have acknowledged that Turkish evidence shows his killing was premeditated. "What we say to people is wait until everything is done" then decide if the investigation was serious or not.

There was no immediate comment from Saudi officials, but Whitson said that they were apparently allowed to leave after a travel ban on Salah was lifted.

"Our Secretary of State has already revoked visas and will be taking additional measures", Mattis said.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a U.S. resident, was killed after entering the consulate to obtain a document that would allow him to remarry. Turkish media have published details of his alleged torture and decapitation.

One week after the Saudis admitted culpability for his death, the U.S.is weighing further action against its partner, despite its importance to the Trump administration's foreign policy.

Al-Mojeb's office said last Friday that Saudi officials were responsible for the death of Khashoggi, who they said died in a fistfight - later saying it was from a chokehold after he raised his voice in the consulate.
