Khashoggi audio makes apparent reference to Saudi Crown Prince, NYT reports

Khashoggi audio makes apparent reference to Saudi Crown Prince, NYT reports”

The US secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, made this threat during a phone conversation with the Saudi crown prince, Prince Mohammed bin Salman, on Sunday, November 11.

Khashoggi, a respected Washington Post columnist and critic of Prince Mohammed, was killed by a team of men who flew from Riyadh to ambush him during a marriage paperwork appointment at the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul last month. Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, one of 15 Saudis dispatched to Istanbul to confront Mr.

Meanwhile, US Representative Adam B. Schiff told The New York Times that investigators were unlikely to collect a piece of evidence that incontrovertibly links bin Salman to Khashoggi's death. "It is pretty incriminating evidence".

"But if the Turkish president has information, he must give it to us".

Saudi Arabia has said it arrested 18 people and dismissed five senior government officials as part of an investigation into Khashoggi's killing.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly stated that the killing was ordered by the "highest levels" of the Saudi government.

But Turkish officials say they played them the recordings but did not hand them over.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was allegedly killed and dismembered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

The Canadian leader is the first since that announcement to officially confirm that "yes" his country's intelligence had listened to the audio. When asked if he had heard the recordings, Trudeau said no, but that members of Canadian intelligence had.

More than 40 days after his killing, Khashoggi's remains have not been located. The investigation had shown the general to be a grandiose and ambitious renegade who sought to impress the crown prince with unauthorized schemes for black operations, the person said.

Turkey says a 15-member Saudi assassination squad strangled and dismembered Khashoggi at the consulate. There have been claims that his body was dissolved in acid.

He continued: "The crown prince says he will clarify the matter and will do what is necessary".

The high profile of Khashoggi, a US -based Washington Post columnist, and the drip-drip of sensational leaks about his demise have provoked a global outcry and tarnished the reputation of the brash young prince, whose efforts to cast himself as a bolder reformer and trusted USA ally have often chafed against his policies overseas.

Turkish intelligence officers have told US officials they believe that Mutreb, a security officer who frequently traveled with Crown Prince Mohammed, was speaking to one of the crown prince's aides. "We are still waiting for elements from the Saudis", the diplomat said.

Under mounting pressure, Saudi Arabia has changed its narrative about Khashoggi's killing.

CSIS director David Vigneault "has listened to the audio tapes in question" and provided a briefing to Justin Trudeau and other Canadian officials upon his return, said John Townsend, a spokesman for the intelligence service. Now, it acknowledges that the journalist's death was premeditated.
