Turkey says Khashoggi murder 'planned in savage manner'

GOP Sen Rand Paul says Saudi explanation of Khashoggi death is insult prince must be replaced

A separate report Monday by newspaper Yeni Safak said Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a member of Prince Mohammed's entourage seen on trips to the U.S., France and Spain this year, made the calls from the consulate.

So much for the "thorough, transparent and timely investigation that provides answers" about the Washington Post columnist's fate that the kingdom promised Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Turkish media reports and officials maintain that a 15-member Saudi team flew to Istanbul on October 2, knowing Mr Khashoggi would arrive to pick up a document he needed in order to get married.

U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters at the White House on Monday that he was "not satisfied with what I've heard", regarding Khashoggi's death.

A senior Turkish official was quoted by CNN as saying that the Saudi official was "brought to Istanbul to act as a body double" for Khashoggi, adding, "This was a premeditated murder and the body was moved out of the consulate". "We're going to go into detail", he said. The man walks out of the consulate via its back exit with an accomplice, then takes a taxi to Istanbul's famed Blue Mosque, where he goes to a public bathroom, changes back out of the clothes and leaves.

Germany signalled it's suspending exports of military equipment to Saudi Arabia pending investigations into the death of government critic Jamal Khashoggi.

Report released detailing Facebook ad spending
An Ad Archive Report launched online gave data including quantities of advertisements and how much money was spent. The social media company is committed to increasing its transparency about political activity.

Yeni Safak cited no source for the information.

After more than two weeks of lies and denials, Riyadh claimed on Saturday that Khashoggi had died during a "brawl" inside the consulate.

Saudi exiles also said that official attempts had been underway to "trap" overseas critics of the government or lure them to return to the kingdom since Bin Salman became crown prince previous year.

In the days after Mr Khashoggi vanished, Saudi officials initially said that he had left the consulate. The friend spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of repercussion.

Saudi Arabia so far has not acknowledged or explained Mr Mutreb's presence in Istanbul.

Twenty consulate workers gave statements to prosecutors in relation to the incident last week, NTV had reported previously. Istanbul's chief prosecutor had summoned 28 more staff members of the Saudi Consulate, including Turkish citizens and foreign nationals, to give testimony.

He said: "No matter the result tomorrow we'll go into the game at the weekend with confidence and looking to reach another final".

That permission, however, was not given to Turkish authorities by the Saudi consulate and they were not able to search the Saudi diplomatic auto on Monday, said private broadcaster NTV.

"There obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up".

Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia said that Khashoggi was murdered but blamed a "rogue operation" for his killing.

Merkel reiterated that she condemned Khashoggi's killing "in the strongest terms" and saw an "urgent need to clear up" the case.

The governments said attacks on journalists are unacceptable and "of utmost concern to our three nations".

It is unclear whether a personal hearing has been requested at the commission, that will be set in due course. As a matter of fact, the same trend as been witnessed in the team's last seven games in the Premier League.

Although Maas had criticized Berlin's arms sales to Saudi Arabia in recent months, weapons exports are within the purview of Germany's Economy Ministry, not the Foreign Ministry.
