Donald Trump says 'rogue killers' may have murdered Jamal Khashoggi

Saudi Arabia government pledges ‘greater action’ if US retaliates for Khashoggi disappearance

"Just spoke to the King of Saudi Arabia who denies any knowledge of whatever may have happened 'to our Saudi Arabian citizen, '" tweeted Trump.

Leaks from the Turkish investigation suggest Khashoggi was interrogated by a Saudi team before he died, with his body then dismembered either in the consulate or at the consul-general's nearby residence. "Who knows?" Trump told reporters at the White House.

"The recent disappearance and likely assassination of Jamal Khashoggi only underscores how urgent it has become for the United States to redefine our relationship with Saudi Arabia", Sanders wrote on Twitter. The Saudi government, it said, would shield the prince by blaming an intelligence official for the bungled operation.

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund (PIF), which hosts the conference, had tentatively committed $20bn to an infrastructure investment planned with Blackstone Group. U.S. intelligence officials have reported they are certain the interference took place in an effort to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign.

The kingdom agreed in principle on Friday to launch a joint investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance in conjunction with Turkish police, but a search of the consulate has been delayed by disagreements over the terms.

The Saudi foreign ministry said King Salman affirmed his country's "solid" relations with Turkey in the phone call with Erdogan, stressing that no one could undermine their relationship.

"It would lead to Saudi Arabia's failure to commit to producing 7.5 million barrels".

It might now be worth " more than two million euros", he suggested. The anonymous buyer says the work marks a seminal event.

Oil prices rose on Monday as tension over the disappearance of a prominent Saudi journalist stoked supply worries, although concerns over the long-term demand outlook dragged on sentiment.

Freeland said she was alarmed by Badawi's imprisonment and called for the release of "peaceful" human rights activists - a statement that prompted the Middle Eastern kingdom's governing monarchy to virtually sever all ties with Canada.

Media reports say Khashoggi may have recorded his own death on his Apple Watch.

Already, worldwide business leaders are pulling out of the kingdom's upcoming investment forum, a high-profile event known as "Davos in the Desert", and the sell-off on Riyadh's Tadawul stock exchange showed that investors are uneasy.

The head of JP Morgan, Jamie Dimon, is one of the latest high-profile executives to pull out. Saudi Arabia has strongly denied killing Khashoggi.

It is feared the Washington Post columnist, who lived in the U.S., was killed and dismembered when he visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. The Arab News published a front-page editorial by Dubai-based real-estate tycoon Khalaf al-Habtoor that urged Gulf Arab nations to boycott worldwide firms now backing out of the investment conference later this month.

It is still unclear whether US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin will attend the conference.
