Mohammed bin Salman 'said Khashoggi should get a bullet'

The Saudi Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Adel Al-Jubeir on Friday told reporters in Washington that the attempt to link Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi was baseless, and that those involved will be held accountable.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman Al Saud said in a conversation with one of his aides that he would go after journalist Jamal Khashoggi, killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, "with a bullet" a year prior to the murder, media have reported, citing USA and foreign officials familiar with intelligence reports.

Qahtani has been identified by United States intelligence agencies as the ringleader of the Khashoggi murder plot and Saudi Arabia has removed him from his post as an adviser to the royal court.

A United Nations rapporteur probing the murder in Turkey of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi said Thursday the killing was "planned and perpetrated" by Saudi officials.

In the book, Cengiz shares her memories and papers detailing the life of former Saudi insider turned critic Khashoggi "who was a journalist for you, but a man for me".

Callamard, reporting on a week-long mission with her team of three experts to Turkey, said that they had had access to part of "chilling and gruesome audio material" of Khashoggi's death obtained by the Turkish intelligence agency.

He said: "We know that this was not an authorized operation".

Senators had asked for the finding by Friday, with an eye to imposing new human rights sanctions on Saudi Arabia over the journalist's October 2 killing inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

For the full year, T-Mobile's net profits declined 36 percent to $2.9 billion - or $3.36 per share. Clyburn said in an interview with Cnet that she is helping T-Mobile address digital divide issues.

She accused Riyadh of compounding the offence by interfering with Turkey's attempts to investigate. Trump has faced increasing pressure at home by members of both parties to take a more forceful stance with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

If neither of those methods worked, the Crown Prince said, then he would go after the slain journalist "with a bullet".

Earlier on Friday, an aide to President Tayyip Erdogan said Saudi officials' "complete lack of transparency" on the murder investigation is deeply concerning and detrimental to their credibility.

"The President maintains his discretion to decline to act on congressional committee requests when appropriate", a senior administration official said in a statement.

Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get a document he needed for his upcoming marriage while his fiancee waited outside.

The fact that Saudi Arabia is closed to cooperation is of course prevented to illuminate all aspects of the incident, the minister said, expressing his will that this report would increase the awareness of the global public opinion and contribute to the emergence of the instigators.

Callamard plans to present her final report to the UN Human Rights Council in June.

Special UN rapporteur, Agnes Callamard, said Thursday after a visit to Turkey that Khashoggi's killing had been "planned and perpetrated" by Saudi officials.
