Trump suggests rogue killers murdered journalist Khashoggi

A video of people with mops and buckets, entering the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul hours before investigators of Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance were to go there has prompted concerns and speculations.

The Middle East Institute, a leading Washington, D.C., think tank, said Monday that it will stop accepting donations from Saudi Arabia pending the investigation into the disappearance and suspected murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate.

Crown Prince Mohammad - second in command to King Salman - wants to make his mark in the world of football and views Glazer-owned Manchester United as the flawless acquisition, The Sun reported today, citing 'well-placed sources'. In statements after the call, both praised the creation of a joint Saudi-Turkish probe.

"How can we criticize [Russian President Vladimir] Putin for killing journalists if we're prepared to allow an ally to do the same?" He said the USA was working with Saudi Arabia and Turkey to figure out what happened.

The New York Times, citing a person familiar with the Saudi plans, reported the crown prince had approved an interrogation or rendition of Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia.

Turkish authorities say prosecutors have found evidence that supports suspicions that missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

Turkish diplomatic sources had said the consulate would be searched by a joint Turkish-Saudi team.

US President Donald Trump earlier Monday said he had spoken with Saudi Arabia's King Salman who strongly denied the kingdom's involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance.

"The king firmly denied any knowledge of it", Mr Trump said.


Trump said he didn't "want to get into (Salman's) mind", but told reporters: "it sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers". I mean, who knows? "We're going to try getting to the bottom of it very soon, but his was a flat denial".

The journalist disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, but the USA president said it sounded like neither the king nor Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had knowledge of the incident.

Turkish officials have said they believe he was killed, a claim Saudi Arabia denies. Saudi Arabia has called such allegations "baseless" but has not proved the writer ever left the consulate.

The US State Department also has urged a thorough investigation into the disappearance.

United States politicians have backed the call for tough punitive action against the Saudis, while Germany, France and Britain have jointly called for a "credible investigation" into his disappearance.

President Trump takes questions from reporters in Georgia.

Prince Mohammed, 33, a son of King Salman, consolidated his control in June 2017 when he was named Crown Prince to replace his cousin, Mohammed Nayef, who was sacked.

They also reportedly revealed information suggesting that a 15-man Saudi hit squad, which flew in and out of Istanbul on the same day the journalist went missing, carried out the deed. He and Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, have forged close ties.

On Monday Turkish and Saudi officials began a search of the consulate.
