Alleged Saudi hit squad linked to Jamal Khashoggi disappearance

Alleged Saudi hit squad linked to Jamal Khashoggi disappearance

He also said that the GOP is going to fare "very well" in the midterm elections.

European Union's foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters in Lisbon that "we are 100 percent behind the American position. We can't let this happen".

Saudi Arabia denies involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance, and the Trump's administration's response has been far more cautious than that coming from Capitol Hill.

The official told the Times the assassination was ordered at the highest levels of the Saudi royal court. "I miss my country very much".

"He shared with me that they only livestream their tapes", Corker said, according to CNN correspondent Manu Raju.

Saudi Arabia has called the charge that it killed or kidnapped Khashoggi "baseless", but has provided no evidence that he left the consulate.

Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said Tuesday he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Khashoggi, "but I will be at some point", without elaborating.

Pictures from outside the consulate showed surveillance cameras installed around the building, while the Saudi authorities have said the surveillance cameras installed at the consulate were capturing pictures without recording them. "We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as available", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

"In both calls they asked for more details and for the Saudi government to be transparent in the investigation process", the White House said.

"At this time, I implore President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance", Cengiz wrote.




One of the 15 Saudis identified by name and photo in the report by Sabah newspaper is reportedly a senior forensic expert.

The release of the photographs and video raises pressure on Saudi Arabia a week after Khashoggi disappeared during a visit to the consulate.

On Wednesday, Corker told reporters that the Senate would "take some action ourselves" over Khashoggi's disappearance.

A USA intelligence source told the New York Times that US intelligence had intercepted communications of Saudi agents discussing a plot to either capture or kill Khashoggi.

State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino earlier insisted that the United States had no forewarning of any concrete threat to Khashoggi.

Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the U.S.is continuing to monitor the unfolding investigation in Istanbul, but offered no information about what the crown prince told the USA officials regarding Khashoggi's disappearance. It was unclear from this whether Saudi Arabia wanted to then kill him or arrest him, or if USA officials made Khashoggi aware of this, the source said.

The wealthy former government insider had been living in the U.S.in self-imposed exile. Corker said "everything points to them".

There are also reports that Turkish intelligence is in possession of a video showing Khashoggi's murder.

Turkish newspaper Sabah, without saying how it obtained the information, reported that on the day Khashoggi went missing, two jets arrived from Riyadh to Istanbul carrying 15 passengers, then returned home later that day via Egypt and Dubai.
