  • Changing story again, Saudi Arabia says killing was planned

"First, we know that killing was in the consulate, which is representative of the state of Saudi Arabia", Callamard said.

TASI, the largest Arab bourse, is 8.4 percent higher on the year. Speaking at an investment forum he was hosting in Riyadh, the crown prince called the killing a "heinous crime" but offered no new information on what happened.

Multiple reports had stated on Wednesday that multiple WWE stars, including John Cena and Daniel Bryan, were uncomfortable with the idea of performing in Saudi Arabia and were refusing to work the Crown Jewel.

An independent United Nations investigator says Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was the victim of an "extrajudicial execution" carried out by the Saudi state.

Turkish authorities briefed visiting Central Intelligence Agency chief Gina Haspel on the investigation into the killing and the evidence they have, a Turkish security official who was not authorized to speak to the media said on condition of anonymity.

Saudi Arabia's shifting narrative over what happened to Khashoggi has prompted an global outcry and left its main allies demanding answers.

Turkey has dismissed Saudi efforts to blame rogue operatives and urged the kingdom to search "top to bottom" for those responsible for the killing.

However, Ali Shihabi, the head of the Arabia Foundation think tank, which is said to be close to the government, contradicts the Saudi narrative.

After more than two weeks of near silence, Saudi Arabia on Saturday admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, saying it was an unauthorised operation - a claim other countries have rejected.

Earlier this week, President Trump expressed his support for Cruz on Twitter and berated his opponent. It's why the president called him "Lyin" Ted' and it's why the nickname stuck".

The crown prince and King Salman earlier invited Khashoggi's son Salah and brother Sahel to the Yamama Palace in Riyadh to offer condolences.

Separately, Saudi Crown Prince Mohamad bin Salman on Thursday chaired a meeting of a newly created committee tasked with restructuring the Saudi intelligence apparatus, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.

Khashoggi was last seen alive walking into the consulate on October 2, and Saudi Arabia initially denied any part in his disappearance. The Public Prosecution received the information from the joint Saudi-Turkey team investigating the case.

"Even if US President Trump saves [Mohammed bin] Salman, in the eyes of the world, he is a questionable person with Khashoggi's blood on his hands", Cevik wrote.

They are the bluntest comments yet from someone linked to Erdogan about Riyadh's de facto ruler in connection with the journalist's death on October 2 in Istanbul.

According to Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih "There were more than 25 deals signed worth $56 billion", adding that USA companies accounted for most of those contracts.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan described the death Tuesday as a "ferocious" premeditated murder.

Still, neither Trump nor Saudi Arabia has been willing to implicate Saudi leadership in the journalist's killing.
