Saudi crown prince ordered op against missing journalist

Turkish sources believe Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul

Khashoggi, a former Saudi government adviser, had been living in self-imposed exile in the United States since previous year fearing possible arrest.

"I've never been more disturbed than I am right now", said Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The head of the association, Dr. Mufleh al-Qahtani, stressed that the matter should be left to the Saudi-Turkish joint investigation team, and wait for the probe's results, stressing that the Kingdom's position on the issue was clear from the beginning when it demanded the need to reveal the truth.

Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump said he has been in contact with senior Saudi government officials about the recent disappearance of Washington Post contributor in Istanbul.

Turkish sources have told Reuters the initial assessment of the police was that Khashoggi, an outspoken critic of the Saudi government, had been deliberately killed inside the consulate.

United Nations rights council criticised over election of new members
The UN General Assembly has elected India as top human rights body for a period of three years beginning January 1, 2019. It was "a vote is ridiculous without competition", said Louis Charbonneau, of the NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW).

Saudi Arabia has vehemently denies the allegations and claimed Khashoggi left the consulate.

The Washington Post and New York Times have reported that Saudi Royal Court: i.e. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman himself ordered an operation targeting Jamal Khashoggi. But while he said he had spoken to Saudi officials-including possibly King Salman himself-Trump made no indication he pressed them for answers and seemed bewildered by the idea that he could possibly find out more. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo followed up with the crown prince afterward.

President Trump, who took his first overseas trip as United States president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Mr Khashoggi. Investigators are also zooming in on a vehicle seen entering and leaving the building after Khashoggi went inside.

The National Union of the Moroccan Press (SNPM) on Sunday called on Saudi authorities to launch an independent investigation into the disappearance of veteran journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The senator called that statement "not credible" and he said it's now up to the Saudi government to clarify the situation.

Who are the 15 Saudi tourists falsely accused of killing Khashoggi? As chair of the subcommittee on appropriations handling USA foreign assistance, he had voted in favor of a $500 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia in 2017. I don't want to lose an order like that.

"If it did happen there would be hell to pay", Graham said.

"It is like Pulp Fiction", the senior Turkish official was quoted as saying, referring to the graphically violent 1994 Hollywood movie by director Quentin Tarantino.

On Tuesday, Cengiz implored US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump "to help shed light on" his disappearance in an op-ed published by the Washington Post, where Khashoggi was a columnist.

Other lawmakers have become involved in the inquiries about Khashoggi. But senior members of Congress with access to USA intelligence reporting feared the worst. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., on Wednesday.

The discussions, which were relayed to The Post via a person familiar with the information, occurred before Khashoggi disappeared.
