Jamal Khashoggi's killing was a tremendous mistake: Saudi Arabia

Think Trump is erratic now? Just wait until after the midterm

Meanwhile, White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law, stressed in an interview to CNN on Monday that Saudi Arabia was an important ally of the United States, especially in countering Iran's influence in the Middle East.

Several countries, including Germany, Britain, France and Turkey, have pressed Riyadh to provide all the facts, and Chancellor Angela Merkel said Berlin would not export arms to Saudi Arabia while uncertainty over Khashoggi's fate persisted.

Trump has also said he didn't want this to potentially spoil the close economic ties between the US and Saudi Arabia, particularly Saudi Arabia's commitment to buy arms from USA companies. We don't know in terms of details how.

As the Toronto Star's Daniel Dale has pointed out, Trump has cited ever-increasing numbers of jobs he's claimed will be created by weaponry sales to Saudi Arabia.

"Yes, I think he did it", said Senator Bob Corker.

Indonesia's president is "deeply concerned" about the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and wants a transparent investigation.

Foreign minister Adel al-Jubeir said that while he did not know exactly how Mr Khashoggi had died, his killing was a "rogue operation" in which Saudi individuals had exceeded their authority.

"I believe the blood of Jamal will create peace in the region if Bin Salman is punished".

John Kelly and John Bolton Argue Over Immigration
Bolton criticised DHS, and Kelly defended Nielsen, a former deputy whom he supported to replace him at the department. The argument was over immigration policy, with Bolton wanting a more hard-line approach on illegal border crossings.

Paul said that he doesn't believe that "arms should ever be seen as a jobs program", adding that the Saudis are using US arms in the war in Yemen where civilians are being killed.

Mr Hunt continued: 'The actions Britain and our allies take will depend on two things: firstly the credibility of the final explanation given by Saudi Arabia, and secondly on our confidence that such an appalling episode can not - and will not - be repeated'.

The authorities initially dismissed reports that Mr Khashoggi had gone missing inside the consulate as false and said he had left the building soon after entering.

An hour later, another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold.

Also yesterday, it was reported that Peter Voser, chairman of Swiss engineering giant ABB, had suspended his membership of the mega-city's board, which was announced on 9 October as alarm and anger mounted over the disappearance of Khashoggi after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a week earlier.

Critics are questioning how a team of 15 Saudi agents could fly to Istanbul to meet Khashoggi and eventually kill him without the crown prince's knowledge and consent.

"A lot of the reforms they've been making there to help us track down the terror financing and also to push back against the people who are perverting the religion, have been very historic over the previous year", he said.

All this came on the eve of Prince Mohammed's high-profile investment summit in Riyadh, which has seen a raft of the world's top business leaders decline to attend over the slaying of the writer for The Washington Post.
