Saudis close to Crown Prince discussed killing enemies

Jeremy Hunt to raise Khashoggi murder during Saudi visit

Their discussions, more than a year before the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, indicate that top Saudi officials have considered assassinations since the beginning of Mohammed's ascent.

According to comments published in Hurriyet newspaper, Erdogan said a Saudi intelligence office who listened to the audio was "shocked" and commented that those involved must have been on drugs.

The Times report went on to claim that a recording was shared last month with CIA director Gina Haspel and is considered by intelligence officials as some of the strongest evidence linking Mohammed to Khashoggi's murder.

Ankara's most damning evidence has come from audio recordings from inside the consulate which it is believed were obtained by Turkish intelligence officers who hacked the Saudi hit team's communications.

Speaking at the International Peace Institute think tank in NY, al- Faisal said: "the kingdom is not going to accept an international tribunal to look into something that is Saudi, and the Saudi judicial system is sound, it is up, it is running, and it will take its course".

Turkish President, Recep Erdogan, was quoted by local media as saying this as he returned from an official visit to Paris on Tuesday. "It should be uncovered who gave the order to kill".

"We gave the recordings, we gave them to Saudi Arabia, we gave them to Washington, to the Germans, to the French, to the English", Erdogan said in a televised speech.

TRT World's Abubakr al Shamahi has this on how Khashoggi's killing could affect US-Saudi relations.

The Turkish journalist Nazif Karaman has described what he says were Khashoggi's last words.

In May, Prince Harry tied the knot to Meghan Markle , which was closely followed by Prince Louis's christening. Harry's wife Meghan , 37, is described as "attractive, beautiful, confident, charming and charismatic".

Subsequently, Saudi Arabia acknowledged that Turkish evidence indicates that Khashoggi's killing was premeditated, shifting its explanation in an apparent effort to ease worldwide outrage over the death.

Yet some of those implicated in the killing are close to the crown prince, including a member of the prince's entourage on foreign trips who was seen at the consulate before Khashoggi's slaying. The Saudis were interested in the idea but said it was so provocative and potentially destabilizing that they wanted to get the approval of the incoming Trump administration before Saudi Arabia paid for the campaign.

However, Turkish and U.S. officials have cautioned that the audio doesn't conclusively implicate Prince Mohammed.

"Take this bag off my head, I'm claustrophobic", according to a Turkish journalist who says he listened to audio of Khashoggi's death recorded at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Asked if he has heard the recording himself, he said: "I have not".

"Due process is in train at the moment in Saudi Arabia, and I was led to believe there will be rapid progress in making sure that people are brought to justice", he said.

A spokeswoman for the UK Foreign Office told Business Insider she would neither confirm nor deny Erdogan's comments because it was an intelligence matter.

Anonymous Saudi officials repeatedly pushed a theory that Khashoggi's body given to a Turkish coconspirator but never revealed a name.

Turkey's chief prosecutor has said he was strangled and then dismembered as part of a premeditated plan.
