  • Three days after Khashoggi was reported missing MBS told Bloomberg news that Khashoggi left the Saudi consulate in Istanbul “after a few minutes or one hour”. The Saudi narrative of the case has changed numerous times since then [Bandar AlGaloud  Saud

"If Khashoggi was fighting inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, he was fighting for his life with people sent to capture or kill him", said Schiff, the ranking member of the House intelligence committee.

Her foreign minister, Heiko Maas, had already said on Saturday that he now saw "no basis for decisions in favour of arms exports to Saudi Arabia".

UAE minister commended the Saudi king for his great efforts to explore the truth and seek legal accountability.


Trump told reporters he thinks Saudi Arabia's explanation that Jamal Khashoggi died after a brawl inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is credible, adding he does not think he has been lied to during conversations with Saudi Arabia's senior leaders.

Republican senators reacted to the latest Saudi narrative with incredulity on the Sunday talk shows.

U.S. President Trump criticized Saudi Arabia's explanation for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying that "obviously there's been deception, and there's been lies". They said he and his advisers want to see the results of both the Turkish and Saudi probes.

[Turkey's president pressured the Saudis to account for Khashoggi's death] Khashoggi, a resident of Virginia, vanished on the afternoon of October 2, after visiting the Saudi Consulate to obtain documents that would allow him to remarry. Days later, Turkish officials said they believed he was killed in the building, an allegation that Saudi Arabia had, until now, strenuously denied.

"The emerging circumstances of Jamal Khashoggi's death are deeply troubling, including the shocking violation of the 1963 Vienna convention on consular relations", Mogherini said. According to him, Moscow is satisfied about cooperation between Turkish investigators and Saudi diplomats.

He also said that they did not know the details of killing, and "where the body is".

Saudi Arabia said early on Saturday that Khashoggi, a critic of the country's de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, had died in a fight inside its consulate in the Turkish city.

The human rights group Amnesty International said Saudi Arabia should "immediately produce" Khashoggi's body so that independent forensic experts can conduct an autopsy in line with international standards.

Germany last month approved 416 million euros ($480 million) worth of arms exports to Saudi Arabia for 2018.

An announcement carried on Saudi state TV was the first official confirmation of Khashoggi's death in Turkey, and the first acknowledgment by Saudi Arabia of its role in it.

"We can feel their pain and we wish this didn't happen and I wish that this could have been avoided", he said in an interview with Fox News.

A United Nations spokesman said the United Nations secretary general, António Guterres, was "deeply troubled" by the confirmation of Khashoggi's death and called for a thorough and transparent investigation.
