Recording hints at Saudi crown prince role in Khashoggi murder

Recording hints at Saudi crown prince role in Khashoggi murder

According to The New York Times, the tape allegedly records Khashoggi's last moments, and catches one of his killers call his superior on the phone and tell the person to "tell your boss" that "the deed was done."

People who've heard a recording of Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi's murder don't believe it implicates Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said, weighing in on a controversy that has sharply raised worldwide pressure on the top oil exporter.

Khashoggi's murder has provoked global outrage but little concrete action by major powers against Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter and a strong proponent of United States policy to contain Iranian influence across the Middle East.

Turkish and US officials, including US National Security Adviser John Bolton, have said that the audio does not conclusively link the killing to Prince Mohammed. Turkey's president said that the recording "shocked" a Saudi intelligence officer and that MBS promised to "shed light on this incident" and do "whatever is necessary".

The crown prince is not specifically mentioned by name during the audio recording, according to the Times.

Khashoggi was killed shortly after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Turkey has said a 15-member Saudi "hit squad" strangled and dismembered Khashoggi at the consulate.

CNN has not heard the recording and is unable to verify the voices on the tape or what they're purported to say.

Erdogan repeated that Turkey had shared audio recordings relating to the killing with Saudi Arabia and other nations, including the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Canada. Turkish police haven't been able to locate the columnist's remains despite extensive searches, and an aide to Erdogan said his body may have been dissolved. "It should be uncovered who gave the order to kill".

Mohammed bin Salman has rose from being a relatively little-known royal to the most powerful man in Saudi Arabia, after the elevation of his father, Salman, to king.

The 67-year-old wrote his master's thesis at Harvard University about Saudi Arabia, studying how the kingdom makes its decisions on defence spending, in a paper that won acclaim in academic circles.

Khashoggi's killing has provoked global outrage but little concrete action by world powers against Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter and a supporter of Washington's plans to contain Iranian influence across the Middle East.

He ran social media for Prince Mohammed, masterminded the arrest of hundreds of Saudi Arabia's elite late previous year in a campaign Riyadh said aimed at rooting out corruption, and took a harsh line against neighbouring Qatar when Saudi Arabia imposed an economic boycott of the Gulf state in June 2017.
