Saudi crown prince breaks silence on 'heinous' Khashoggi killing

Turkish Leader: 'Savage' Murder Can't Go Unpunished

Reports emerged about a Saudi hit squad killing and dismembering the journalist - allegedly on the orders of the crown prince.

French President Emmanuel Macron says Paris is prepared to back imposing global sanctions on those involved in the death of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who is said to have been murdered on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's orders.

"We are determined not to allow a cover-up of this murder and to make sure all those responsible - from those who ordered it to those who carried it out - will not be allowed to avoid justice", Erdogan said in a speech in Ankara. He added that he wanted the region's economic transition to happen in his lifetime.

The United States has threatened sanctions if the Saudi leadership is linked to the murder, and on Tuesday revoked the visas of 21 Saudi nationals implicated in the crime.

Addressing a panel at the Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh, Prince Mohammed said that many parties were trying to exploit the incident to "drive a wedge between Saudi Arabia and Turkey".

Slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body has been found in a well at the Istanbul residence of the Saudi consul general, according to Turkish politician Dogu Perincek.

He continued: "This murder may have been committed on Saudi soil, however this was inside Turkish borders".

Eighteen days after Khashoggi disappeared, Saudi Arabia acknowledged that the writer is dead.

State media also said the king and the crown prince had held a meeting in Riyadh with members of the Khashoggi family, including Khashoggi's son, Salah bin Jamal.

Crown Prince Muhammad said, "The new Europe is the Middle East. Saudi Arabia and Bahrain will be different, even Qatar despite our differences, they have a strong economy and they will be different in five years".

For Saudi Arabia's allies, the burning question has been whether they believe that Prince Mohammed, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability in the killing, a possibility raised by several USA lawmakers. The crown prince, already a controversial leader in relation to his crackdowns on dissent and the Saudi role in the war in Yemen, is suspected of orchestrating Khashoggi's killing.

Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post, was seen on CCTV walking into the Saudi Embassy in Turkey on October 2 to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage and was never seen again.

As part of that probe, Turkish police in Istanbul have been granted permission to search a well in the garden of the Saudi consulate, broadcaster NTV said on Wednesday.

France also weighed in, saying it would take "punitive measures" if Saudi Arabia was "proven" to be behind the murder.

Also on Tuesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the US has "identified at least some of the individuals responsible" for Khashoggi's death, "including those in the intelligence services, the royal court, the foreign ministry and other Saudi ministries".

Saudi officials at first said that Khashoggi walked out of the consulate and that they did not know his whereabouts.
