Trump 'not satisfied' with Saudi explanations of Khashoggi death

Trump had previously suggested that the Saudi explanation for Khashoggi's death was credible.

Erdogan demanded that whoever ordered the killing of Khashoggi "be brought to account", and that the 18 officials already arrested by Saudi Arabia in connection with the killing stand trial in Istanbul.

A Reuters witness said a Saudi team accompanied the Turkish investigators as they carried out the search in a auto park where the vehicle was found in Istanbul's Sultangazi district on Monday.

The Saudis have laid out different versions of the circumstances that led to the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who was not seen after entering the consulate on October 2.

Trump has previously called Saudi versions credible and sent conflicting signals on how the US should respond, last week calling the journalist's killing "very bad" but repeatedly emphasizing that he didn't want to endanger USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Saudi investment in the USA or the American alliance with the kingdom. But he said, "They had a very bad original concept" and it was "carried out poorly".

Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, in Indonesia, also pledged that mechanisms will be put in place so that "something like this can never happen again".

The Khashoggi case has caused worldwide outrage and frayed political and business ties between Western powers and USA ally Saudi Arabia, the world's No.1 oil exporter. Saudi Arabia has described the suspects as rogue operators, even though officials linked to Saudi Arabia's assertive Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman have been implicated in the killing.

Alexis Sanchez unexpectedly missed Manchester United's final training session before their Champions League clash with Juventus . The Portugal captain tapped in, after Joao Cancelo's shot was blocked, having earlier hit the post with a header.

King Salman, 82, has handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to the 33-year-old prince.

Turkish investigators, however, have steadily leaked evidence to the media that allegedly proves the journalist was tortured, murdered and his body dismembered within the consulate building.

Trump allies and advisers have encouraged him to take a tougher stance against the oil-rich monarchy, saying that Congress would fill the vacuum and punish Saudi Arabia either way.

After this, Mr Trump said: "We'll know pretty much everything there is to know". The administration "will continue to hold those responsible accountable". He did not mention the purported audio and video recordings recording of the killing itself which according to reports multiple sources have confirmed that his officials have.

Police cordoned off access to the vehicle park, where large numbers of media have gathered, an AFP photographer said. It was not clear what was in the suitcases.

What happened to Jamal Khashoggi? I think that's over a million jobs.

In a news conference at the State Department in Washington, Mr Pompeo said that he and the president were "not happy with the situation".

CELTICS NOTEBOOK: Rivalry with 76ers is starting to be renewed
There are a couple of teams, if you study those turnovers, they've been in the top five for the past four years and don't win. Al Horford had nine points and five blocks. "We felt all of the Celtics tonight", 76ers coach Brett Brown said.

Turkey's president says Saudi officials plotted for days to kill reporter Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's diplomatic offices in Istanbul.

Despite these comments, Trump added that he was still waiting for all of the facts.

Gina Haspel, the then-nominee for the CIA Director post, testifies at her confirmation hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, US, May 9, 2018. The Saudi government says that Khashoggi died after a fistfight. He was told he would need to return later to collect the documents.

After accusing the Saudis of initially obstructing Turkey's investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, Erdogan said Tuesday he trusted Saudi Arabia's King Salman pledge to cooperate. "From now on, we expect them to uncover all those responsible for this matter from top to bottom and make them face the necessary punishments", Erdogan said.

He didn't say whether the U.S. would impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia, a longtime ally in the Middle East, however, or on members of the country's royal family. We have to develop our own data set. Consulate personnel were given the day off. We are seeking answers to this. Who did these people get their orders from to go there?

The Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Tuesday that evidence uncovered during the investigation has yet to be shared with any country, according to Turkey state-run Anadolu News, but that Turkey was "ready to cooperate in a possible probe into Khashoggi case at United Nations, global courts".
