Khashoggi slain in consulate

Mecca view

A joint Turkish-Saudi team completed an investigation into the case on Thursday after searching the residence of the consul general as well as the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. "I believe that when the investigation is over, and the facts are revealed, and people know who was responsible, and see those individuals punished, and procedures put in place to prevent this from happening [again], the relationship will weather this", he said. "Defending freedom of the press is a key priority for Finland", the tweet read.

Trump endorsed Saudi Arabia's explanation about the death of Khashoggi and called it an "important first step".

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland issued a statement Saturday responding to Saudi Arabia's explanation following the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying it lacked "consistency and credibility".

"There were not people closely tied to him".

It comes just one day after Saudi Arabia stated that Khashoggi had died in a "fistfight" in the consulate, with authorities announcing the detention of 18 suspects in the case.

Demonstrators dressed as Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and US President Donald Trump (C) protest outside the White House in Washington, DC, on October 19, 2018, demanding justice for missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff of California said Saudi Arabia's claim that Khashoggi died in a brawl wasn't credible.

"We're going to know over the next two or three days", Trump said.

Deputy intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri and royal court media advisor Saud al-Qahtani were both part of Prince Mohammed's inner circle. "We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said.

The incident had threatened to create a diplomatic crisis with the US, which sees its alliance with Riyadh as the cornerstone of its Middle East policy, and Turkey, which has tenuous ties with Saudi Arabia.

Turkish media reports said more than a dozen Turkish staff members of the consulate - including technicians, drivers, telephone operators and accountants - were being interviewed by prosecutors.

A bipartisan group of USA politicians has accused the Crown Prince of directing the operation, with Republican Senator Rand Paul telling Fox News that the U.S. "cannot continue to have relations with him and so I think he's going to have to be replaced".
