Saudi government planned Jamal Khashoggi hit: NY Times

Saudi government planned Jamal Khashoggi hit: NY Times

A prominent critic of Saudi Arabia went into that country's consulate in Istanbul last week and never came out again.

On Tuesday, Republican Senator Rand Paul, a longtime critic of the Saudi government, said he would try to force a vote in the Senate this week to block USA arms sales to Saudi Arabia if there is "any indication" the Saudis are implicated in Khashoggi's death.

"For the sake of Jamal's family, we call again for answers about Jamal and his whereabouts".

"We want to see what's going on. It's a very serious situation for us". Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. Trump also said he had spoken with the Saudis about what he called a "bad situation", but he did not disclose details of his conversations.

Speaking at "The Energy Forum" on Monday, oil minister Dharmendra Pradhan said two state refiners had placed orders for importing oil from Iran in November.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman told Bloomberg News in an interview last week that Khashoggi had left the consulate shortly after entering it last week and that he was ready to let Turkey search the building.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also spoke to the crown prince to reiterate the US' request for information, Sanders said.

According to Al Arabiya English, Hatice Cengiz, self-claimed fiancée of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, has links with Qatar. Robin Wright, a scholar at the Wilson Center think tank and close friend of the missing writer, said that's unlikely to change.

But she also implored "President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

Zanganeh accused Tehran's regional rival Saudi Arabia of bowing to USA pressure, saying such remarks had no "real impact on the market" but were part of a psychological war launched against Iran.

One of the men identified by name and photo in the Sabah report is a Saudi forensic expert, according to Saudi media reports, and is on the board of the Saudi Society of Forensic Medicine.

Anonymous Turkish sources say the 15 men flew into Istanbul of two private Gulfstream IV jets with tail numbers HZ-SK1 and HZ-SK2.

The Saudi embassies in the United Kingdom and USA did not immediately respond to MEE's request for comment.

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that US intelligence had intercepted the communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture Khashoggi, citing an unidentified person familiar with the information.

Whether this refers to the new General Directorate for Investigation as part of new Saudi state security departments created previous year is unclear.

Corker says he was told that closed-circuit TV from the consulate was live only and did not record.

"To me ... it feels very much some nefarious activity has occurred by them". But after three hours I was overcome with fear and concern.

On September 28, Jamal visited the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul for the first time, despite being somewhat concerned that he could be in danger.

Istanbul prosecutors are investigating the incident, while the consulate said on Twitter that it was working in coordination with Turkish authorities.

"In particular, both India and China continued to import crude from Iran, even though they had to cut down volumes significantly".

News channel 24 aired the video Wednesday, suggesting that Khashoggi was inside of the black Mercedes Vito. The paper reported the men checked into two hotels in Istanbul on October 2 and left later that day.

Aksam said they left their hotel later in the morning.

So far, no one has produced any footage allegedly showing Khashoggi leaving the consulate.
