Khashoggi killers ‘will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia’ - Saudi foreign minister

Khashoggi killers ‘will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia’ - Saudi foreign minister

"Turkish officials suspect Saudi agents killed Khashoggi, 59, inside the consulate and dismembered him".

The Saudi foreign minister vowed Saturday that the kingdom would "overcome" the crisis over Khashoggi's killing.

"I demand that all those involved in this savagery from the highest to the lowest levels are punished and brought to justice", she said.

Involved in this case is a disturbing flow of accusations and a complicated diplomatic state making it hard to keep track of the happenings of the Khashoggi case.

Saudi Arabia has announced the dismissals of six officials who worked directly under bin Salman. In the 1980s he was an embedded reporter with Osama Bin Laden's forces in Afghanistan and supported Al-Qaeda in that conflict.

"Nobody should rule out the price jumping to $100 and $200 a barrel or maybe double that figure", warned Mr al-Dakhil, an ally of the Saudi royal court.

Your opinion is valuable.


Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, had gone missing since entering the consulate on October 2. He was however asked to return on October 2, 2018.

For not less than 10 hours, Cengiz waited for Khashoggi. It had previously claimed he left the consulate alive.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Saturday that the killing of Jamal Khashoggi "undermines regional stability" and the State Department will take action in response to the writer's death. "There's a focus on youth and empowering women, there's a focus on creating transparent accountable efficient governments that can provide a better future for our citizens", he said.

It's not only the Trump administration facing criticism from Khashoggi's fiance she also revealed that the Suadi Arabian government has failed to call her.

"It was a total fiasco", he later added. He didn't say if Canada would cancel a 2014 multi-billion dollar deal to supply light-armoured vehicles to the Saudis.

"Whoever thought of that idea I think is in big trouble - and they should be in big trouble". "It should have never happened".

Palladino said Thursday that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had discussed Jamal Khashoggi's son during his recent visit to Riyadh and "made it clear" to Saudi leaders that Washington wanted him free to leave the kingdom.


Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl meanwhile suggested a joint European Union ban on arms exports to Saudi Arabia could help bring the brutal Yemeni conflict to an end.

Turkey has been on the frontline trying to get justice for journalist Khashoggi. "Who gave the order for 15 people to come to Turkey?" he said.

In an interview with Turkey's Haberturk TV on Friday, Cengiz said she believed the invitation was aimed at influencing public opinion in the president's favor.

He attacked "hysteria" in the reporting of what happened to Khashoggi, who was invited into a Saudi consulate in Istanbul then killed.

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani hit out at Trump, saying the "heinous murder" would have been unthinkable "without U.S. backing". Last week, the kingdom acknowledged that the killing was "premeditated".

It also said they were accused of murder by "premeditation, monstrous intent or by torture".
