Turkish president: Jamal Khashoggi’s murder was ‘ferocious,’ ‘planned’

Many foreign investors see a risk that the Khashoggi case, which drew global condemnation, could damage Riyadh's ties with Western governments.

"The more one thinks about it, the more it feels like our intelligence is being mocked", he wrote. But he said Turkey would not complete its investigation into Khashoggi's death until all questions were answered.

Hinting at the possibility that this could target Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman himself, Mr Hunt said: 'When we have full accountability for the crimes that have been committed, which have been described by the Saudis as murder, then that accountability must extend to the people who gave the order for the crimes to be committed, not just those who were there on the ground'.

He has twice held telephone talks with King Salman on the crisis, with some analysts arguing Erdogan was seeking to preserve Turkish-Saudi relations through the ageing monarch while sidelining his headstrong son Prince Mohammed.

Saudi Arabia said it arrested suspects and that several top intelligence officials were fired over Khashoggi's killing, but critics alleged that the punishment was created to absolve Prince Mohammed, the heir-apparent of the world's top oil exporter, of any responsibility.

Separately, Erdogan offered condolences to the family and relatives of Khashoggi.

A Syrian family is now living in the house in the Termal district, which they have rented, reports said, as police left the residence after collecting evidence for two hours.

But, in some critical areas, his explanation appeared to depart from previous official statements.

After vehemently denying any official involvement in the incident, on Friday the kingdom said the journalist had actually died in a "rogue operation " during a fight in the consulate.

A few days later, a Turkish government source said police believed he was murdered by a team sent to Istanbul, and on October 17, a Turkish newspaper said he was tortured and decapitated inside the consulate.

Erdogan said Saudi Arabia was obligated to reveal the identity of everyone involved and called for the prosecution of those responsible to happen in Turkey.

Prior to Jubeir's interview, a senior Saudi official laid out a version that itself contradicted earlier explanations.

But Barmin noted that the Kremlin is being cautious not to alienate Turkey, which has taken the lead in challenging the Saudi account of Khashoggi's death.

On Monday, leaked surveillance video showed a man strolling out of the diplomatic post hours after Khashoggi disappeared into the consulate, apparently wearing the columnist's clothes as part of a macabre deception to sow confusion over his fate. CNN has broadcast footage of this exit.

It also followed a report from The Washington Post on October 10 that MBS had personally ordered an effort to lure Khashoggi, who had been living in Washington, D.C., back to Saudi Arabia.

Even Trump, however, acknowledges that Kushner's work on trying to craft peace between Israel and the Palestinians has been set back by Khashoggi's death.

Yasir Al-Rumayyan said the fund has invested in 50 or 60 firms via SoftBank Group's Vision Fund and would bring most of those businesses to the Kingdom.

Turkey is pursuing the case, Erdogan said, as both a "representative of humanity's shared conscience and also for its sovereign rights". "Saudi Arabia must put in place measures to ensure something like this can never happen again".
