Did Crown Prince Order Murder of Saudi Journalist?

Did Crown Prince Order Murder of Saudi Journalist?

But three US law enforcement sources said that because Khashoggi is not an American citizen and disappeared outside the country, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has no automatic jurisdiction to get involved in the case and could only become involved if requested by a foreign government such as Turkey. It was unclear from this whether Saudi Arabia wanted to then kill him or arrest him, or if US officials made Khashoggi aware of this, the source said.

Mr Erdogan has not accused Saudi Arabia of being responsible for Khashoggi's disappearance but has said that if the Saudis have footage of him leaving the consulate they should release it. "The intelligence reports are very direct, very short and give further credence to the fact that the focus needs to be on Saudi Arabia right now", Corker said.

"He shared with me that they only livestream their tapes", Corker said, according to CNN correspondent Manu Raju. A friend of a Saudi journalist who went missing in Istanbul says officials told him to "make your funeral preparations" as the Washington Post contributor "was killed" at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

A United Nations human rights expert has said the investigation into the disappearance of a Saudi journalist in Turkey "should not be politicized", insisting the case has created a dilemma for the Turkish government. Turkish officials fear the team killed Khashoggi, who wrote critically of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The senator called that statement "not credible" and he said it's now up to the Saudi government to clarify the situation.

Donald Trump, the U.S. president, said he had raised Mr Khashoggi's case with Saudi Arabia "at the highest level" and a few times in recent days.

Mostly, users have been sharing shock at the news, but amongst the posts of mourning, as well as hopes that the news might prove untrue, Saudi loyalists have been flooding social media with theories of their own. Yet Jamal did not think the Saudis could force him to stay at the consulate in Turkey, even if they wanted to arrest him.

Reporters Without Borders said in a statement that between 25 and 30 professional and non-professional journalists are now detained in Saudi Arabia. "We don't have any information on that", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters Tuesday.

Khashoggi went to the consulate to take care of some paperwork for his upcoming marriage to a Turkish national.

Trump's comments Wednesday were the toughest yet from his administration. Turkey also requested permission to search the consulate building.

The Trump administration, from the president on down, is heavily invested in the Saudi relationship. The administration's Middle East agenda heavily depends on the Saudis, including efforts to counter Iranian influence in the region, fight extremism and build support for an expected plan for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

Since 2009, the executive branch has notified Congress of proposed foreign military sales to Saudi Arabia of major defense articles and services with a potential aggregate value of almost $139 billion, according to a Congressional Research Service report. A photograph published online shows a Saudi royal guard standing beside Crown Prince Mohammed. He has championed the three-year military campaign against Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen that has pushed that nation toward starvation and caused many civilian deaths. The investigation is triggered by a letter to the president from the chair and ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Corker and Menendez, respectively. Trump visited Saudi Arabia on his first global trip as president and announced $110 billion in proposed arms sales.
