Norman Foster pulls away from Saudi mega-city board over Khashoggi crisis

Oscar PerryOct 23, 2018

The foreign minister's attempt to put daylight between Khashoggi's murderers and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is to be expected-but in no way credible.

Conservative justice critic Tony Clement says Canada should invoke the new Magnitsky Act to sanction those responsible for the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"The government is in agreement that we will not approve further arms exports for the moment because we want to know what happened", Altmaier told ZDF broadcaster.

Saudi Arabia on Monday said King Salman and his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had called the son of slain Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, to express condolences for his death at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul by officials that allegedly included a member of the royal's entourage.

"I am not satisfied with what I have heard", Trump told reporters at the White House, adding that he thought more would be known about the controversial case "very soon".

Turkish investigators have released security camera images showing that a Saudi body double was used in the attempted cover-up of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

Former foreign secretary Boris Johnson said Britain should "refuse to turn a blind eye" to the death of the dissident journalist and pressure Saudi Arabia into ending the brutal civil war in Yemen. He called on the world to grasp the gravity of "Saudi state terrorism".

Mr Hunt continued: 'The actions Britain and our allies take will depend on two things: firstly the credibility of the final explanation given by Saudi Arabia, and secondly on our confidence that such an appalling episode can not - and will not - be repeated'.

"Corker is also calling on Turkey, which has said it has tapes from Khashoggi's killing inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, to turn them over to the United States".

Erdogan spoke to U.S. President Donald Trump by telephone Sunday.

"We have lot of terrorism in the region", Kushner noted.

Trump told the Post that "something will take place" in response to Khashoggi's death, but said the United States should not let the incident disrupt a possible $110 billion weapons sale to Riyadh he announced past year.

Yasin Aktay, an adviser to Mr Erdogan in his AK Party and close friend to the dead journalist, said: "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. Nobody has told me he is not responsible", the US leader said.

"Nothing can justify this killing and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms", the three countries said in a joint statement on Sunday.

Turkish officials suspect Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate by the Saudi agents and his body cut up.

The kingdom's announcement Saturday that Khashoggi died in a "fistfight" was met with global skepticism and allegations of a cover-up to absolve the 33-year-old crown prince of direct responsibility. "And I think we're inching our way there".
