Turkey Says Will "Reveal Whatever Happened" In Saudi Journalist Death

The pan Arab satellite news broadcaster owned by billionaire Saudi businessman Alwaleed bin Talal will go on air Feb

Several of the suspects - including members of the crown prince's security detail and a well-known forensics expert - were captured in security camera footage entering the consulate building the day Khashoggi died.

Saudi Arabia finally admitted early Saturday that Khashoggi had died inside the consulate in what it described as a "brawl".

How did they explain it?

According to Saudi media, preliminary results of investigations showed that he was murdered inside the consulate, and "the discussions between Jamal Khashoggi and those he met at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul. devolved into a fistfight, leading to his death", the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said, citing the public prosecutor.

The kingdom announced that 18 people had been arrested in the ongoing investigation. Saudi Arabia did not say where his body, allegedly dismembered, may be now. "The Secretary-General stresses the need for a prompt thorough and transparent investigation into the circumstances of Mr Khashoggi's death and full accountability for those responsible".

Gulf ally the United Arab Emirates on Saturday hailed Saudi Arabia for its response to the death of critic Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed inside the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

Five Saudi officials have reportedly been fired in connection to Khashoggi's death.

Not so, US Republican Senator, Lindsey Graham, who wrote: "to say that I am skeptical of the new Saudi narrative about Mr. Khashoggi is an understatement".

Turkish officials claimed to have audio recordings that provided strong evidence Khashoggi, who had been dropped off at the consulate by his fiancée to pick up divorce papers, was tortured for seven minutes before being beheaded.

US President Donald Trump said he agreed that Saturday's explanation and investigation into what had happened to Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was credible. "It is unsafe for Saudi Arabia, for the region". "It's hard to find this latest "explanation" credible".

International human rights watchdog Amnesty International said that the Saudi account was "not trustworthy" and called on Riyadh to produce Khashoggi's body so that independent forensic experts might determine the cause of his death.

The Saudi king also ordered the setting up of ministerial committee under the chairmanship of the crown prince, widely known as MBS, to restructure the kingdom's intelligence agency and "define its powers accurately".

It effectively dismissed Turkish claims that he had been murdered by a Saudi hit squad flown into the country for the job, and insulated Mohammed Bin Salman, the young Saudi crown prince, from blame.

If he was fighting with those sent to capture or kill him, it was for his life.
