Turkey Says Khashoggi Strangled in Consulate as International Fallout Continues

Crown Prince meets American Evangelical delegation

The president, however, "will demand accountability for those who were involved in the commission of this heinous crime", Pompeo stressed Thursday.

An activist holds a sign and image of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi during a demonstration calling for sanctions against Saudi Arabia and to protest Khashoggi's disappearance, outside the White House in Washington, US, October 19, 2018.

The administration has remained adamant that Khashoggi's death will not jeopardise a $110bn arms deal with Saudi Arabia that was approved last May. And even though Riyadh already confirmed that the journalist was indeed killed and his body 'disappeared, ' the United States administration is still trying to determine individual figures it could blame and punish.

Fidan, the Istanbul prosecutor, on Wednesday said that Khashoggi was strangled shortly after entering the consulate and that his body was dismembered afterward. Ankara maintains that there is strong proof that the killing of the Saudi journalist at the Saudi consulate on October 2 came as a result of a pre-planned operation by a squad of hitmen rather than a spontaneous fist-fight incident, as claimed by Riyadh.

Stephens, who is going to play her first final in Singapore , also expressed her happiness as she has outshined some great players in the tournament.

When he first disappeared, it said Khashoggi had walked out of the building alive.

Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, reportedly told the White House that Jamal Khashoggi was a unsafe Islamist in a phone call days after the journalist was murdered. Turkey wants the suspects to be extradited. The Turks added that the Saudi prosecutor also said no statement had been made by Saudi authorities about the existence of the purported local cooperator.

After Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, five high-ranking officials were dismissed, including bin Salman's media chief and the deputy head of the Saudi intelligence service.

Saudi Arabia has faced backlash over the death, including from its allies, who have called for answers.

Curry reveals Klay Thompson MISSED PRACTICE before record-breaking score
Khris Middleton scored 16 points and hit four three-pointers for the Bucks, who are 5-0 for the second time in franchise history. With the gold headband on, Thompson missed his first 3-point attempt but he'd connect on the next one to tie Curry's record.

Pompeo, in an interview with KMOX radio in St. Louis, said President Donald Trump had made it clear Washington would respond to the killing.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino on Thursday called for Khashoggi's remains to be located and returned to his family for burial as soon as possible.

He said France was not "dependent on our economic relations with Saudi Arabia" and the country would impose sanctions, but no details were given.

"We're going to find the fact pattern", he said.
