Khashoggi killers 'will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia' - Saudi FM

On the matter of Jamal Khashoggi's killing and the ongoing investigation, Al Jubeir said the Saudi government is committed to finding all the facts, and said it is working closely with the Turkish government to do so.

According to Turkish officials, the audio allegedly reveals Khashoggi was interrogated, tortured, killed and dismembered after he entered the consulate on October 2.

"The reasoning behind the extradition request is that Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in Turkey by Saudi nationals who travelled to Turkey for this specific objective", a senior Turkish official said.

Erdogan also said Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor was due in Istanbul on Sunday to meets its regional chief prosecutor.

Turkey wants the suspects extradited from Saudi Arabia but the Kingdom's Foreign Minister says they will be investigated and prosecuted where they are.

"I greatly admire those who, even before they know anything, say "We won't sell any more weapons"!", the French leader said in an apparent reference to Germany.

"Turkish officials suspect Saudi agents killed Khashoggi, 59, inside the consulate and dismembered him".

Saudi journalist Khashoggi, 59, who had lived in self-imposed exile in the United States since 2017, was murdered after entering his country's Istanbul consulate on October 2 to obtain paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancee. On Thursday, officials changed the kingdom's account again, saying the murder appears to have been premeditated. Saudi state media reported that Salah and his family expressed "great thanks" to King Salman and the Crown Prince, the man who may have ordered his father's death. The kingdom's leadership has pushed responsibility down the chain of command.

Despite demands from various groups, President Trump has refused to tear up an arms agreement between Saudi Arabia and the United States.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups", he told reporters last week.

Pushing harder on the kingdom to reveal all the facts and officials involved in the attack might prove difficult for the US, as President Donald Trump has counted on Saudi Arabia to commit both troops and money in Syria to relieve pressures on USA forces and war spending there, and have a larger role countering Iran.

The sale of weapons "has nothing to do with Mr. Khashoggi".

He attacked "hysteria" in the reporting of what happened to Khashoggi, who was invited into a Saudi consulate in Istanbul then killed. Prince Mohammed, the kingdom's de facto ruler, has denounced the "repulsive" murder, denying any involvement.

In a furious opinion piece published last night, Turki al-Dakhil, general manager of the Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya news channel, warned the USA "will stab its own economy to death" if it tried to impose sanctions.
