Trump, Turkey's Recep Erdogan Agree On "Need To Clarify" Khashoggi Case

Karen Attiah is a Ghanaian American writer and Global Opinions editor for the Washington Post

The holding company that includes one of the world's pre-eminent talent agencies, William Morris Endeavor, has been working to determine how it might sever ties with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia, sources say. "He could have known they were bringing him back to Saudi Arabia".

Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir says the kingdom did not know where the body of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi was, despite admitting to the killing and calling it a "tremendous mistake".

"We are determined to uncover every stone. We haven't reached that point", the president said.

According to the senior Saudi official, the Saudi team rolled up Khashoggi's body in a rug, took it out in a consular vehicle and handed it to a "local cooperator" for disposal.

Mr Corker, who chairs the Foreign Relations Committee, added that if the prince is implicated, "There should be a collective response".

"He was killed in the consulate".

Democratic Senator Dick Durbin called in a statement for the expulsion of the Saudi ambassador from the United States - Prince Khalid bin Salman, the crown prince's younger brother - pending completion of a "third-party investigation into the kidnap and murder of Jamal Khashoggi".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday vowed to reveal within days the "naked truth" over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as Riyadh insisted it did not know the whereabouts of his body and that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had been unaware of any operation to kill him.

Where is the investigation now?

"There remains an urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened on October 2nd - beyond the hypotheses that have been raised so far in the Saudi investigation, which need to be backed by facts to be considered credible", the three countries said in a joint statement.

Both the consulate and the residence of the Saudi consul have been searched too.

King Salman ordered the dismissal of five officials, including Saud al-Qahtani, a royal court adviser seen as the right-hand man to Prince Mohammed, and deputy intelligence chief Ahmed Asiri, Saudi state media reported on Saturday.

"Concerning arms exports: that is impossible under the circumstances we see", she added, noting that Germany is considering additional "reactions" to Khashoggi's death.

An army of social media activists is being employed by the Saudi Arabian government to troll dissenters and shape a positive online image of the kingdom, according to an explosive New York Times story.
