Khashoggi killing: Erdogan accuses 'highest levels' of Saudi gov't

Perspectives Leon Levy

As for the Khashoggi disappearance, it is the belief of many that Saudi agents murdered him during his visit to the Gulf state's consultant in Turkey, then chopped into small pieces and discreetly transported him out of the building, or even dissolved him inside.

Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the 33-year-old heir to the most powerful throne in the Middle East, won global plaudits for his drive to remake the conservative petrostate while he amassed power to a degree unseen by previous rulers.

The body of a Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi killed in the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul, was destroyed in the acid.

In an op-ed published on Friday in several news outlets including Le Monde and The Washington Post, Ms Cengiz urged the global community to "bring the perpetrators to justice", adding that "the United States should be leading the way". Turkey has demanded cooperation from Saudi officials.

"The Khashoggi crisis is a big geo-political gamble for Turkey and so far it looks like it is playing the game masterfully". He added that the Saudi officials who were still trying to cover up the killing should be discovered.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe insists United remain the favourites for Saturday's clash, despite his side's impressive start to the season.

"With this communications strategy, Turkey was able to control the narrative and keep the Khashoggi murder in the headlines while the public debate continued as the investigation moved along", Kaplan said. Turkey's state-run news agency says the Turkish military has shelled positions held by USA -backed Kurdish fighters across the border east of the Euphrates River in Syria, killing four Kurdish fighters and wounding six others.

A month after Khashoggi's murder, the crown prince appears to be entirely secure in his power. "But just what is happening is opaque".

The case has provoked global condemnation, but one month after Khashoggi was killed, the joint Turkish and Saudi probe has made little progress and many questions remain unanswered.

"He (the prince) is weakened".

"There's now an added cost to. cooperating or partnering with Saudi Arabia in general, the government in particular and, especially, the crown prince".

The woman was identified as Izabela Lechowicz, an experienced pilot and flight instructor, Polish Radio reported, citing police. A small candle was placed in front of the flowers as people gathered at the stadium.

Other lawmakers urged the United States not to forsake justice for Khashoggi, in the interest of preserving trade interests with Saudi Arabia. It also is pressing Saudi Arabia for information about who ordered Khashoggi's killing and the location of his remains.

Netanyahu said at a news conference that Iran is a bigger threat than Saudi Arabia and those who want to punish the Middle East kingdom need to bear that in mind.

Back home, Saudi nationalists have sought to rally around the prince with adulatory poems on social media as officials project it is business as usual with public events such as a glitzy wrestling extravaganza in the capital on Friday.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres, in a video message for the "International Day to End Impunity for Crimes Against Journalists", marked annually on November 2, called the killing of journalists "outrageous".

But many others are shocked by the global backlash.

Turkish President Erdoğan urges Saudi prosecutor to probe who ordered Khashoggi hit
"The victim's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation", the statement said . Saudi leadership has blamed a "rogue operation" for the killing of Khashoggi.

Instead of backing off Prince Mohammed, the USA hopes to capitalize on what it regards as new leverage with Saudi Arabia to end the brutal civil war in Yemen and ease a regional standoff with Qatar, according to multiple U.S. and diplomatic officials.
