Khashoggi murdered over 'report on Saudi chemical warfare secrets

Khashoggi murdered over 'report on Saudi chemical warfare secrets

"The individuals are Saudi nationals, they are detained in Saudi Arabia, the investigation is in Saudi Arabia", Foreign Minister Adel Al-Jubeir said Saturday at the Manama Dialogue conference in Bahrain.

Speaking at a memorial event in London on Monday, she said through a translator: "I believe that the Saudi regime knows where his body is".

The fiancee of the murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi has demanded that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reveal the whereabouts of his body.

Prince Mohammed, heir to the oil-rich nation's throne, publicly denounced the murder as "repulsive" while the Saudi prosecutor acknowledged for the first time last week that based on the evidence of a Turkish investigation the killing had been "premeditated".

Gruesome reports have alleged that the Washington Post columnist was killed and dismembered by a team sent from Saudi Arabia to silence him.

Germany has already said it will stop exporting weapons to Saudi Arabia until the circumstances surrounding Mr Khashoggi's death are cleared up. The foreign minister also did not directly respond to questions about how the kingdom would persuade its allies that Crown Prince Mohammed had no ties to the killing.

Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor has arrived in Istanbul as part of an investigation into the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"The explanations given so far by Saudi Arabia are not sufficient", Cengiz said. The U.S. has faced criticism as having a responsibility in the conflict because of its military support for Saudi Arabia, including providing intelligence, training and targeting information. Macron said any decisions that would be taken, including potential sanctions, must be made at the European level to ensure co-ordination.

Saudi authorities did allow them to take water samples for analysis, local media reported.

She added, "President Trump should not pave the way for a coverup".

"I met him a week before his death", Khashoggi's friend, who the paper said was a Middle Eastern academic who wished to remain anonymous, was quoted to have said. Saudi Arabia's foreign minister said on Saturday that it won't extradite any suspects to Turkey, despite calls by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to do so as a sign of goodwill.

"If Khashoggi did, in fact, have proof that Saudi Arabia was deliberately misusing phosphorous for this objective, it would be highly embarrassing for the regime and provides the nearest motive yet as to why Riyadh may have acted when they did against him", the Sunday Express quoted chemical warfare expert, Col. Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, as saying.

The writer was highly critical of the Saudi leadership and left his homeland for the United States past year after growing fearful for his safety. "The world should know who instigated, were involved in and committed this crime".

"That's an appropriate response while we continue to investigate and learn more about who in the Saudi government is responsible".
