Trump Accuses Saudis Of 'Lies' As Europe Condemns Khashoggi Killing

Twenty-five more people will be quizzed as witnesses

"There's no way 15 people were sent from Saudi Arabia to Turkey to kill a dissident without the approval of the crown prince..."

Jubeir insisted, however, that the operation was not ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, despite reports tying some suspects to members of the de facto ruler's security detail.

"I did not think it was appropriate to go and speak at this conference but we continue to have important issues with Saudi and that is why I am going there", Mnuchin said. "This was an operation that was a rogue operation", Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said in an interview with Fox News' Bret Baier on Sunday.

Nebraska GOP Sen. Ben Sasse said in a separate interview on the same program that the U.S. needed to look at a wide range of responses to Saudi Arabia, including potentially cutting arms sales to the kingdom.

After denying any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi for two weeks, Saudi Arabia on Saturday morning said he had died in a fistfight at the consulate.

In a statement on Friday night, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the United States will closely follow worldwide investigations into Khashoggi's death and will advocate for justice that is "timely, transparent and in accordance with all due process".

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and top government figures have remained cautious in their public statements, stopping short of pinning the blame on Saudi Arabia and referring instead to the prosecutors investigation.

German arms exports are subject to government approval, including cabinet review. Turkish investigative agencies have said that he was brutally killed inside the consulate.

Cowboys trading for Raiders WR Amari Cooper
Galloway, drafted eighth overall by the Seahawks in 1995, didn't have a 1,000-yard season in four years with the Cowboys. The fourth-year receiver has 22 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown in six games for the Raiders this season.

Amid calls across the world for arms embargos against Saudi Arabia, US President Donald Trump has said his country would be "punishing itself" if it halted weapons sales to the country.

U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican close to Trump, accused MbS of ordering Khashoggi's murder and called him a "wrecking ball" jeopardizing relations with the United States.

That explanation has sparked allegations of a cover-up meant to shield the powerful crown prince.

Turkey will "never allow a cover-up" of the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, a senior official in Turkey's ruling party says. Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the US response.

"As far as weapons exports, which are already limited, are concerned, they can not take place in the same fashion as they are now", Merkel said in Berlin Sunday after a meeting of her Christian Democratic Union party's executive.

Three major European powers - Germany, Britain and France - pressed Saudi Arabia to provide facts to back up its earlier explanation that a fight led to the journalist's death.

"Saudi Arabia has been a great ally, but what happened is unacceptable", the president said.

Al-Jubeir also said he expected the US-Saudi ties to withstand the aftermath of the Khashoggi murder.
