Saudis vow 'full' probe of Khashoggi murder, USA defence secretary says

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron are seen at a news conference after a Syria summit in Istanbul Turkey

Sources close to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi are saying that it's possible he was killed because he was about to reveal Saudi Arabian use of chemical weapons in Yemen.

Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since 2 October and President Trump has confirmed that he will not cancel existing contracts with Saudi Arabia because it would cost U.S. jobs.

Turkish officials have concluded a team of 15 Saudi agents was involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Arabia Consulate (pictured) in Istanbul.

When asked who was ultimately responsible for the killing, his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, told Reuters in Turkish: "This took place inside a Saudi diplomatic mission".

But the administration wants to see Saudi Arabia resolve the Qatar crisis and take similar steps toward its widely criticized war in Yemen, according to one USA official who, like the other people cited in this story, asked not to be identified.

Before the rally he told reporters he would travel to Pittsburgh, but an itinerary has not been released. Robert Bowers arrived in court in Pittsburgh shackled to a wheelchair and wearing a blue shirt.

Asked about the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body, which remain a mystery almost a month after his death, Cavusoglu said that "as those who committed the murder are in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabia has a very large responsibility".

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 Saudi suspects detained in Saudi Arabia for the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate after he entered the building on October 2. Ms. Cengiz first raised the alarm. "I want those who killed my beloved Jamal and those who ordered [the killing] to be brought to justice", Cengiz said, speaking at a memorial event held in Westminster. He was a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto Saudi ruler, who has purged rivals and consolidated power.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said those behind the killing would be prosecuted in the kingdom.

As public uproar mounted, Saudi Arabia's leadership arrested 18 suspects, fired five top officials and announced a reorganization of the nation's intelligence agency.

Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of the Middle East and North Africa division of Human Rights Watch, delivered a heartfelt tribute to Khashoggi, whom she described as "the Saudi man who would not bow down". I want justice to be served.

Plant City man wins $3 million in Mega Million drawing
Last month, a drought-stricken farmer in NSW was given some relief after he won $200,000 in the Lucky Lotteries Mega Jackpot draw. Kelley Brooks bought a Mega Millions victor after her husband Larry sent her a reminder text to pick up a ticket.

"Let's not let money taint our conscience and compromise our values".

Turkey's foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, on Monday welcomed the co-operation between Turkish and Saudi investigators and said he hoped there would be no further delays.

"When I asked him why he was anxious, he didn't really want to reply, but eventually he told me he was getting proof that Saudi Arabia had used chemical weapons".

Trump has hedged his criticism of Saudi leaders over Khashoggi, insisting he does not want to imperil a "tremendous order" of US$110 billion (RM459.75 billion) of weapons he says will support 500,000 U.S. jobs - figures that experts say are highly exaggerated. But the decision to marry in Istanbul, whose mosques reminded Khashoggi of his hometown Medina, set off a paper chase that ultimately ended in death.

Cengiz said she had been shown no recordings of what happened inside the consulate and that she got most of her information from the media.
