Saudi Operative Seen in Khashoggi's Clothes After he was Killed

The crown prince, who observers far and wide believe was behind the kill order, called Khashoggi's son to express condolences, the authorities said.

All this came on the eve of Prince Mohammed's high-profile investment summit in Riyadh, which has seen a raft of the world's top business leaders decline to attend over the slaying of the writer for The Washington Post.

In addition, members of the Turkish-Saudi working group established in connection with the investigation into the disappearance of a Saudi journalist Jamal Haskaj, held a 9-hour search by the Consulate General of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.

-Oct. 6: The Post, citing anonymous Turkish officials, reports Khashoggi may have been killed in the consulate in a "preplanned murder" by a Saudi team.

CNN aired surveillance footage showing a man in Mr Khashoggi's dress shirt, suit jacket and pants. The man walks out of the consulate via its back exit with an accomplice, then takes a taxi to Istanbul's famed Blue Mosque, where he goes to a public bathroom, changes back out of the clothes and leaves.

Turkish police are searching an abandoned diplomatic auto belonging to the Saudi Arabia consulate that was found on Monday in a parking lot in Istanbul in efforts to make clear about the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, local media reported.

Asked if there was any question in her mind that Prince Mohammed was involved, Pelosi said, "Everybody has a question. I want to see the rest of the documentation and know more about it. that's my sense". He also said he will talk soon to Prince Mohammed.

At the same time, Prince Mohammed's credibility has taken a beating with a series of questionable decisions in recent months.

Palestinian officials say that in briefings with the Saudis, Abbas raised objections after concluding the plan would fall far short of his goal of establishing an independent state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem.

"One cannot help but wonder how there could have been a "fistfight" between 15 young expert fighters ... and a 60-year-old Khashoggi, alone and defenceless", Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan and a friend of Khashoggi's, wrote in the pro-government Yeni Safak newspaper. Altmaier on Monday called for a joint European position on arms exports to Saudi Arabia. Turkish officials suggest Khashoggi might still be in the consulate.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government has said Riyadh's explanation of Khashoggi's death is insufficient. He initially said he believed the Saudi account.

Five Turkish employees of the consulate also gave testimonies to prosecutors, Turkish media reported.

Saudi Arabia will not use its oil as political leverage in the dispute over the death of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who died in the Saudi consolate in Istanbul on October 2, said Saudi Arabian Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih in an interview with Russian news agency TASS.

"The individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their authority", he added.

Ruling AK Party spokesman Omer Celik said efforts had been made to cover up the killing, referring to surveillance footage aired by CNN showing a man dressed as Khashoggi walking around Istanbul after he vanished in an apparent attempt at deception. It is unacceptable, in any government. Saudi Arabia does not know where Khashoggi's body is, he told Fox News.

President Donald Trump had also talked about possible punishment but said he didn't want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia because, he maintained, it would harm US manufacturers.
