Khashoggi: Saudi version unsatisfactory; wont scrap arms deal, says Trump

Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud chats with Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan in Jeddah Saudi Arabia

"This was an operation that was a rogue operation, "Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News on Sunday".

"The results of the preliminary investigations revealed that the discussions that took place with the citizen during his presence in the consulate by the suspects did not go as required and escalated negatively, which led to a fight between them and the citizen, which aggregated the situation and led to his death, may God rest his soul", the Foreign Ministry said.

"There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up", he said, adding, "That is unacceptable in any government". We don't know in terms of details how.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Sunday defended his decision to visit Saudi Arabia later this month despite the continuing turmoil following the killing of Washington Post columnist and activist Jamal Khashoggi.

She also reiterated the federal government's call for a thorough investigation in collaboration with Turkish officials.

Steelers still haven’t heard from Le’Veon Bell
Bell was scheduled to make roughly $14.5 million this year after being franchise-tagged by the Steelers this offseason. In the grand scheme of things, the Pittsburgh Steelers probably didn't want to have their bye week this week.

Canada's foreign minister, whose tweets on human rights led to a diplomatic spat with Saudi Arabia earlier this year, said the kingdom's explanations on the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at its consulate in Istanbul "lack credibility".

On the same day, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would make public on October 23 the "naked truth" about the killing of the dissident, who was last seen entering the consulate on October 2.

A number of Saudi nationals have since been arrested while deputy intelligence chief Ahmad al-Assiri and Saud al-Qahtani, a senior aide to the Crown Prince, have been dismissed, state TV reported. He was accidentally choked after resisting and his body was rolled up in a rug and given to a local person for disposal, the official said.

The Trump administration has strongly denied a claim that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was played an audio recording and provided a transcript of Khashoggi's killing.

The Saudis admitted yesterday that Khashoggi died in their Istanbul consulate following a disagreement and a "brawl".

Floyd Mayweather Jr.is determined to end 2018 with a bang, if Manny Pacquiao is to be believed. Khabib boxes well, he showed that against McGregor, where he was one step ahead.

Judging by the worldwide reaction to Saudi Arabia's "explanation" for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the kingdom might as well have stuck to their original story.

"People fear them. You challenge them, you might end up in prison, and that has happened", he said. He initially said he believed the Saudi account.

"The quality and significance of the relationship we have with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia also rests with the respect we have for the norms and values to which the Saudi authorities and us are jointly committed under worldwide law", they warned. Those having such links will be held accountable and brought to justice, it said.

McKinsey said in a statement that it was "horrified" by the possibility its report was used to target individuals and that it was not prepared for any government entity.

"There remains an urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened ... beyond the hypotheses that have been raised so far in the Saudi investigation, which need to be backed by facts to be considered credible".
