Khashoggis body parts found: Writers disfigured face is discovered in garden of Saudi consul generals home - as Erdogan declares savage murder WAS pre-planned Jamal Khashoggi was killed after entering Saudi Arabias embassy in Istanbul Turkish President Erdogan said there was strong evidence killing was planned He said a team of Saudi officials had disabled CCTV in the consulate building Erdogan said this is a political murder and demanded to know who gave orders A report claims some of Khashoggis remains have been found in the grounds of the Saudi consul generals home But in his speech, Erdogan had earlier said a corpse had not yet been located









Why did these 15 people meet in Istanbul on the day of the murder? We are seeking answers to this. Who are these people receiving orders from? Erdogan said.

My demand is that 18 people be tried in Istanbul, Erdogan said in his speech, referring to 18 people including security officials who have already been detained by Riyadh.

He added that all those who played a role in the murder had to face punishment.

Erdogan said that the murder was planned days in advance according to a roadmap set up by a Saudi team who were sent to Istanbul for the purpose. The surveillance system at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul was deactivated on purpose, he said.

First they (the Saudis implicated) removed the hard disc from the camera system, Erdogan said. This is a political murder, he added.


In an explosive speech, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said there were strong signs a Saudi team plotted to kill the dissident journalist days before his death on October 2

Saudi Arabia is in crisis after Khashoggi murder, energy minister tells Davos in Desert conference

Saudi Arabia is a nation in crisis, the countrys energy minister told an international investment conference on Tuesday, following global outrage over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih told the Future Investment Initiative, which opened in Riyadh today, that these are difficult days for Saudi Arabia, calling Khashoggis killing abhorrent. 

However, despite his comments - and a wave of cancellations from high-ranking Western political figures and business titans - Saudi Arabia said it is expected to sign deals worth more than $50 billion on the opening day of the conference alone.

The Future Investment Initiative forum is the brainchild of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, aimed at drawing more foreign investment into the kingdom and to help create desperately needed jobs for its youthful population.

But the summit, dubbed Davos in the desert has been overshadowed by growing global outrage over the murder of Khashoggi inside the kingdoms consulate in Istanbul earlier this month. 

Dozens of executives - from bankers JP Morgan to carmaker Ford and ride-hailing app Uber - scrapped plans to attend, prompting organisers to take down a list of speakers from its website.

In further embarrassment to the regime, the summits website was infiltrated by hackers accusing the regime of financing terrorism on Monday.

Hackers edited the events poster to show the kingdoms powerful crown prince as an ISIS executioner wielding a bloody sword with Khashoggi kneeling before him.  

The hackers wrote underneath the image: For the sake of security of children worldwide, we urge all countries to put sanction [sic] on the Saudi regime.

The regime, aligned with the United States, must be kept responsible for its barbaric and inhuman action, such as killing its own citizen Jamal Khashoggi and thousands of innocent people in Yemen. 

The medieval Saudi regime is one of the sources for #Terrorism_Financing in the world.


The website for Saudi Arabias Davos in the desert summit was hacked on Monday to show Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman appearing to behead Jamal Khashoggi.

The hackers also published what they purport is a list of a thousand terrorists and spies of the Saudi Arabia regime who perform malicious activities around the world - complete with their phone numbers and email addresses.

The summits website has since been taken down.  

The forum last year proved to be a glitzy affair that drew more international business attention to the kingdom, however despite the luxurious setting at the five-star Ritz-Carlton hotel, this years event will forever be linked to the brutal murder of Khashoggi.


But Erdogan added he still wanted answers on numerous issues including who gave orders to the team and where the corpse is.

Erdogan did not mention Prince Mohammed by name in the speech but said he was confident of the full cooperation of his father Saudi King Salman in the probe. 

To blame such an incident on a handful of security and intelligence members would not satisfy us or the international community, Erdogan said.

Saudi Arabia has taken an important step by admitting the murder. As of now we expect of them to openly bring to light those responsible - from the highest ranked to the lowest - and to bring them to justice, the Turkish president said.

All evidence gathered shows that Jamal Khashoggi was the victim of a savage murder. To cover up such a savagery would hurt the human conscience, he said.

He said no Saudi linked to the murder should enjoy diplomatic immunity as set out by the Vienna Convention.

The Vienna Convention and other international regulations dont allow for a savage murder to be protected from investigation by diplomatic immunity. 

This morning, one of Erdogans left-wing rivals, Patriotic Party leader Dogu Perincek, said that some of Khashoggis remains had been recovered.

Perincek told Turkish TV that parts of the body of the murdered Saudi journalist have been found in a well in the grounds of the Saudi consul generals home. However, he did not expand on the claims, and authorities have not commented on his statement, news website Haberler reported. 

After initially denying any knowledge of Khashoggis fate, the kingdom gave a new story on Saturday, saying he died in a fistfight.

Saudi Arabia said 18 Saudis were arrested and that several top intelligence officials were fired over the killing, but critics alleged that the punishment was designed to absolve the Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdoms heir-apparent, of any responsibility.

Erdogan earlier promised the case will be revealed in all its nakedness in a speech to ruling party members.

Turkeys foreign minister, meanwhile, said his country would cooperate with international bodies if they were to launch an independent probe into the Khashoggis killing.


This morning, Saudi Arabias foreign minister said the investigation into the killing will produce the truth about what happened. Adel al-Jubeir also pledged that mechanisms will be put in place so that something like this can never happen again

Hitman made SEVEN calls to the Saudi Crown Princes private office on the day Khashoggi was killed

Turkish intelligence officers intercepted more than a dozen phone calls by the man described as the spinal cord of the Saudi hit squad accused of murdering Jamal Khashoggi.

Major General Maher Abdulaziz Mutrib, a former diplomat who was once posted to Britain, has also been pictured travelling alongside the Crown Prince on official visits to the UK and the US.

Seven of the phone calls he made on the day Khashoggi was killed were made directly to the Saudi Crown Princes private office.

According to Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak, Mutrib spoke to Badr al-Asaker, head of the Crown Princes private office, four times after Khashoggi was killed.

Last night, one Saudi and one Turkish intelligence source told Reuters that a Saudi royal aide sacked over the killing directed the murder by giving orders over Skype.

Saud Al-Qahtani, who ran social media for the crown prince, allegedly insulted the journalist after he was seized in the consulate before telling a hit squad bring me the head of the dog.

He was sacked from his post on Saturday and was made chairman of the Saudi Federation for Cybersecurity, Programming and Drones, a role he had held before. 

It has since also been claimed that that members of the hit squad sent Mr Khashoggis fingers back to Riyadh to prove the missions success.


In an interview with state-run Anadolu Agency, Mevlut Cavusoglu also said Turkey has not shared evidence concerning his death at the Saudi consulate with any country but added that there may have been an exchange of views between intelligence organisations.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that he is not satisfied with the explanations hes heard about the killing of Khashoggi and is awaiting reports from U.S. personnel returning from the region.

Were going to get to the bottom of it. We have people over in Saudi Arabia now. We have top intelligence people in Turkey. Theyre coming back either tonight or tomorrow, Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for a political rally in Texas.

A high-profile economic forum in Saudi Arabia began Tuesday in Riyadh, the kingdoms first major event on the world stage since Khashoggis killing. 

The Future Investment Initiative forum, the brainchild of Prince Mohammed, is aimed at drawing more foreign investment into the kingdom and helping create desperately needed jobs for its youthful population.

Prince Mohammed was not at the forum when it started.

On Monday, leaked surveillance video showed a man strolling out of the diplomatic post hours after Khashoggi disappeared into the consulate, apparently wearing the columnists clothes as part of a macabre deception to sow confusion over his fate.

The new video broadcast by CNN, as well as a pro-government Turkish newspapers report that a member of Prince Mohammeds entourage made four calls to the royals office from the consulate around the same time, put more pressure on the kingdom.

Meanwhile, Turkish crime-scene investigators swarmed a garage Monday night in Istanbul where a Saudi consular vehicle had been parked.

Saudi Arabias foreign minister, meanwhile, said Tuesday the investigation into the killing of Khashoggi would produce the truth about what happened and that his country was committed to ensuring that the investigation is thorough and complete and that the truth is revealed and that those responsible will be held to account.

Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, in Indonesia, also pledged that mechanisms will be put in place so that something like this can never happen again.

The murder of the Washington Post contributor has damaged the international reputation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who has spearheaded a reform drive in the kingdom.   

He who was credited with key changes  including giving women the right to drive but is now accused of having ordered Khashoggis murder - a claim Riyadh denies. 

Reports in pro-government Turkish media have suggested he was slowly strangled in an operation by a 15 person assassination team. But these claims have yet to be confirmed on the record and Khashoggis remains have also not been found.   

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Berlin would not export arms to Riyadh in the current situation, despite Germanys approval last month of 416 million euros ($480 million) worth of arms exports in 2018.

Despite also pulling out of the Davos-style summit, US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin met the crown prince behind closed doors for bilateral talks in Riyadh today. CIA Director Gina Haspel, meanwhile, headed for Turkey, although details of her trip were not immediately clear.

Khashoggi was working to expose Saudi Arabias use of social media trolls and had been harassed on Twitter before he was killed, his friend claims

Jamal Khashoggi was working to expose  Saudi Arabias use of social media trolls before he was murdered, one of his friends has revealed. 

Omar Abdelaziz, who now lives in Canada, told Euronews he and Khashoggi had been working on a series of projects together, including an exposé of the use of social media by pro-government accounts.

He told the website, that his friend had been targetted on Twitter by so-called electronic flies as they worked together on human rights campaigns.

He said: I have known (Khashoggi) for three years but I did not agree with him politically because he seemed closer to the official approach.

But things changed since Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia in September 2017. We reviewed this relationship and we got in touch almost every day.

On Saturday, the New York Times reported that Saudi Arabia deployed an online army to harass Khashoggi and other critics of the kingdom on Twitter.

The efforts to attack Khashoggi and other influential Saudis, and sway public opinion against them on the social media service, included a so-called troll farm based in Riyadh and a suspected spy within Twitter that the kingdom utilised to monitor user accounts, the New York Times reported.

Twitter declined to comment. A representative from the Saudi embassy in Washington did not immediately respond to a request for comment.


White House advisor and Trumps son-in-law Jared Kushner, believed to have close ties with the crown prince, said he had urged him to be fully transparent, stressing that the world is watching.

Speaking in Jakarta, Saudi Arabias Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir vowed a thorough and complete investigation. He said procedures would be put in place to ensure that something like this can never happen again. 

Omer Celik, spokesman of Erdogans ruling party, said the killing was planned in an extremely savage manner, and that there has been a lot of effort to whitewash this.  

Some of the consulate employees who gave testimony to Turkish prosecutors said they had not been given holiday on the day that Khashoggi was murdered, despite reports in local media, and they finished work at 3.30pm.

The employees were also quoted as saying that they did not see or hear any sounds related to a fight despite Riyadhs claims that Khashoggi died during a brawl.

Erdogan has so far stopped short of directly pointing the finger at Riyadh. Analysts say he preferred to authorise the leak of incriminating information to pro-government media to put pressure on the kingdom.

He has twice held telephone talks with King Salman on the crisis, interpreted by some as a bid to sideline the ageing Saudi monarchs son Prince Mohammed.
