Reports disfigured body of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's found

The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to reveal this on Tuesday, 23rd "the whole truth" about the murder of the journalist of saudi arabia, fell into disgrace for his critics.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday also criticized the Saudi operation that killed Khashoggi, calling it one of the "worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups".

In the days after Khashoggi vanished, Saudi officials initially said he had left the consulate by its back door. On October 2, 22 US senators sent a letter to President Donald Trump, formally triggering a provision of the Magnitsky Act, which requires the president to determine "whether a foreign person is responsible for a gross human rights violation".

"We continue to view as achievable the twin imperative of protecting America and holding accountable those responsible for the killing of Mr. Khashoggi", Pompeo said. On Thursday, Prince Mohammed chaired the first meeting of a committee his father King Salman has tasked with revamping the intelligence services in light of the Khashoggi crisis.

Turkey's investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on October 2 has been at times delayed by Saudi officials, who have appeared reluctant to grant authorities permission to search places considered Saudi territory.

"Why was the 15-man Saudi team in Turkey?"

As the shocking revelations mount, Turkey is pushing Saudi Arabia for more detail. "The incident is not justifiable", he said. "This is at [King Salman's] discretion but this is my suggestion".

Erdogan delivered "quite a masterly piece of geopolitical leverage" over Saudi Arabia, the Beirut-based award-wining British journalist said.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, disappeared on October 2 when he visited the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage. Most of the information about the investigation that has emerged has come through leaks to the Turkish media. But Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih acknowledged "these are hard days". "We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said.

"All evidence gathered shows that Jamal Khashoggi was the victim of a savage murder".

For Saudi Arabia's allies, the burning question has been whether they believe that Prince Mohammed, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability in the killing, a possibility raised by several USA lawmakers.

He also said that cameras at the consulate had been removed the day before the team's arrival.

An unnamed source told The Washington Post two weeks ago that the "lays out what happened to Jamal after he entered" the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

"The individuals who have done this have done it outside the scope of their responsibilities".

"Saudi Arabia is stuck in a quagmire they can't get out of", Kowsari said, adding that the designation was an attempt to utilize the tactic of attack being the best form of defense.

The poll also found a partisan divide, with more than half of Republicans saying his response has been about right, while 78 percent of Democrats said they think he hasn't been tough enough.

Saudi Arabia's explanation has been questioned by leaders in the United States and Europe.
