What Happened To Jamal Khashoggi? Donald Trump Asks For Tape Recordings

Dozens of business leaders and diplomats have withdrawn from the Saudi economic conference

US lawmakers on Sunday voiced skepticism about the Saudi explanation of the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, calling on Washington to take action in response.

Turkish investigators allege that 15 Saudi agents killed Khashoggi, who was living in exile in the United States, shortly after he entered the consulate.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body was given to a "local cooperator" after he was killed in his country's consulate in Istanbul, a report said.

After Saudi Arabia confirmed his death, she wrote on Twitter in Arabic: "They have taken your body from this world, but your attractive smile will stay in my world forever".

"We must get to the truth of what happened".

Erdogan spoke to U.S. President Donald Trump by telephone Sunday. We have top intelligence people in Turkey.

The tough stance by the Congress may be at odds with the remarks from the White House. "It's a very sad thing".

Trump seemed to be taking a tougher stance Monday against Saudi Arabia. When asked Friday whether he thought the Saudi explanation was credible, the president answered: "I do".

Also Sunday, images that were obtained by TRT World, a Turkish news channel that broadcasts in English, showed Khashoggi as he arrived at a police barrier before entering the consulate on October 2. The Arabian government has also sacked Saud Al-Qahtini, the advisor to Prince Mohammed Bin Salman.

Most recently, the Saudis said Khashoggi was killed in a chokehold when he tried to leave the consulate to call for help. Mr Erdogan stopped short of mentioning the crown prince who some United States lawmakers suspect ordered the killing.

The vase depicts a scene from The Odyssey , in which Odysseus is strapped to the mast as he passes the deadly sirens. They found a Greek trading vessel whose design had previously been seen only on ancient pottery.

Numerous U.S. lawmakers, including Trump's Republican colleagues, are calling for sanctions against the Saudis. "Nobody has told me he is not responsible", the US leader said.

Economy Ministry spokeswoman Tanja Alemany said German exports worth 416 million euros ($479 million) to the kingdom were approved in the first three quarters of the year, but she didn't have a figure for how many have been delivered so far.

In the Commons, Jeremy Corbyn said he was pleased Mrs May had condemned the "horrific murder" of Mr Khashoggi but added "condemnation is not enough" from the Government.

Whatever the US response, USA ties with its Gulf ally have hit rough waters.

Erdogan spoke after Saudi Arabia, in a statement early Saturday, finally acknowledged that 59-year-old Khashoggi had died in the consulate, though its explanation that he was killed in a "fistfight" was met with worldwide skepticism and allegations of a coverup created to absolve Prince Mohammed of direct responsibility.

The two men - both in their 30s, both trusted aides of older, familial leaders - struck a bond last spring and consulted with one another frequently in private calls in the months that followed.

The Conservatives have generally been highly reticent to express criticism towards the Saudi government or its crown prince.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin addressed the Khashoggi investigationin a meeting Monday with the Saudi Crown Prince, according to a tweet from Treasury spokesperson Tony Sayegh. Theresa May has repeatedly travelled to Saudi Arabia, as well as hosting bin Salman at Downing Street earlier this year to try and cement post-Brexit trade deals.

"We are faced with a situation in which it was a brutally planned (killing) and efforts were made to cover it up", said Omer Celik, a spokesman for Turkey's ruling Justice and Development Party.
