Khashoggi death: Saudi suspects to be barred from UK

Turkish Leader: 'Savage' Murder Can't Go Unpunished

Over the past year, there have been several reports of clandestine meetings between Saudi and Israeli officials, including between the top statesmen: Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia's de-facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

By Ali Kucukgocmen and Ezgi Erkoyun ISTANBUL: U.S. President Donald Trump said Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince bore ultimate responsibility for the operation that led to Jamal Khashoggi's killing, and Turkish police were allowed to extend their probe at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Erdogan further mentioned that out of the 18 Saudi nationals arrested, 15 were the very same Saudis who have been identified by Turkish authorities who arrived in Istanbul before the incident that left Khashoggi dead.

Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the crown prince, last week said the United States had asked Turkey for any audio or video evidence. He added that he wanted the region's economic transition to happen in his lifetime. We will continue to explore additional measures to hold those accountable.

Many worldwide business leaders and officials had pulled out of attending the gathering in the wake of the slaying of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Prince Mohammed on Wednesday and the two discussed the steps needed to bring to light all aspects of the killing of Khashoggi, a presidential source said.

Turkey says Khashoggi was killed in a planned murder at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul earlier this month.

Many world leaders have condemned the murder of the prominent Saudi critic and demanded a full investigation.

Erdogan dismissed Saudi Arabia's claim that "rogue agents" were responsible.

"In terms of what we ultimately do, I'm going to leave it very much - in conjunction with me - I'm going to leave it up to Congress", Trump said.

That is an obvious shame that touches also Crown Prince [Mohammed bin] Salman.

"We know that many are trying to use this painful thing to create a kind of wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey", he said.

Since Khashoggi's disappearance more than three weeks ago, Turkish and Saudi authorities have carried out multiple searches at the consulate and consul general's residence in Istanbul.

After entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey on 2 October this year, however, he was never seen again.

The death of Khashoggi, a USA resident and Washington Post columnist, has sparked global outrage and threatened relations between Riyadh and Washington as well as other Western nations.

The latest focus appears to be on a well in the garden of the Saudi consulate building.

The kingdom's announcement that Khashoggi died in a "fistfight" was met with global skepticism and allegations of a cover-up to absolve the 33-year-old crown prince of direct responsibility.
