Did Crown Prince Order Murder of Saudi Journalist?

WWE Comments On Media Backlash From Saudi Government

Khashoggi was last seen on October 2 entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get documents for his forthcoming marriage.

The journalist fled Saudi Arabia and lived in self-imposed exile in the U.S., after he grew more critical of Mohammed bin Salman for the war in Yemen and the crown prince's crackdown of dissent in the kingdom.

The journalist has been critical of the Saudi authorities' policies and crackdown on dissent, activists, businessmen, and some members of the royal family in 2017. He had been living in the USA state of Virginia.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday he addressed the disappearance of a Washington Post journalist with an unnamed senior Saudi leader at the "highest level".

A source told the Washington Post that United States intelligence "intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture him".

Today, Turkish television broadcaster NTV released CCTV footage of some of the Saudis going from the airport to the Movenpick Hotel, where they are believed to have stayed, and on to the consulate.

The Saudi regime denies this. Relations were already strained after Turkey sent troops to the Gulf state of Qatar past year in a show of support after its Gulf neighbors, including Saudi Arabia, imposed an embargo on Doha.

Khashoggi feared for his safety before he entered the Saudi diplomatic compound, and asked her to speak to leading Turkish officials if he did not come out of the consulate.

Khashoggi had first left Saudi Arabia a year ago, saying he feared retribution for his criticism of Saudi policy in the Yemen war and its crackdown on dissent.

Trump told reporters a day earlier that he had raised Khashoggi's case with Saudi Arabia "at the highest level" and a few times in recent days, and said he and his wife expect to invite Cengiz to the White House soon.

The editorial page editor of the Washington Post told the Daily Beast that his paper was aware that Khashoggi was looking to formally move into the advocacy world. "We need to nip it in the bud", he told reporters.

Trump also said that the White House would be meeting with Khashoggi's fiancee, though at the time, he referred to her as Khashoggi's "wife".

I have to find out what happened.

Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee. The footage shows Khashoggi entering the consulate on October 2. "I don't trust them one bit, '" Saffuri said. As an individual who believes that life and death are in the hands of God, I pray to God alone for Jamal's safe return. "But I don't want to rush to judgment".

While the crown prince has been praised for modernizing some aspects of Saudi life, he has also been ruthless against his critics or anyone standing in the way of his rise to power.

Signs of such a challenge began to emerge Monday night when Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on the Saudis to "support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation". "‎As the President has conveyed, the United States is concerned by his disappearance".

A government source has told me President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is sounding more cautious than the leaks, because if he were to echo the allegations that Mr Khashoggi was murdered, it would mean kicking out the Saudi ambassador and consul general by now.

Rubio is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which has called for an investigation into whether Saudi Arabia should face human rights sanctions under the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act.

The country's ambasador to the US, Prince Khaled bin Salman al-Saud - brother of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - described the accusations as "completely false and baseless".
