Saudis don't know where Khashoggi's body is

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir said the murder was carried out by Saudi officials

"I find it very odd that members of Congress would try to curtail allies like Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in trying to push back against terrorist organizations supported by Iran and Hezbollah", Jubeir told "Face the Nation", responding to Congressional efforts this week against the Kingdom. "It was a mistake. And we will continue to provide assistance to the Yemeni people". "It was committed by officials of the Saudi government acting outside their scope of authority". We will hold those responsible accountable and we will punish them.

According to sources, the security team of the Saudi crown prince visited several places to review security arrangements in the federal capital.

"The death of Jamal Khashoggi was a massive tragedy", he said.

The dissident journalist was dismembered after his murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, but his remains have yet to be found, AFP said.

Last week, a United Nations expert heading an investigation into the murder slammed the kingdom's obstruction of Turkey's probe following the killing.

Although the White House has sanctioned 17 Saudi individuals for their involvement in the murder, including two top aides to MBS, members of Congress from both parties have called for greater action to be taken against the kingdom and its leaders.

"What I tell people is wait until the legal process plays out and then judge us", al-Jubeir told CBS. "Don't judge us before the process is complete".

APC vs PDP: Why we dumped Buhari for Atiku - Northern stakeholders
He said Buhari has fallen short of expectations of the masses as he failed in all the three thematic areas of his campaign, namely security, economy and fight against corruption.

But Saudi Arabia has a long history of detaining and murdering dissidents.

The report naming Turki Aldakhil, former general manager of Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television, was published by The New York Times on Thursday.

"I'm not going to comment on reports based on anonymous sources", he said.

Al-Jubeir claimed Saudi investigators still don't know the location of Khashoggi's body.

Turkey says he was killed by a team of 15 Saudis who strangled him at the mission, and media reports have said his body was cut up and dissolved in acid.

"We are still investigating", he told CBS.

"We have now a number of possibilities and we're asking them what they did with the body, and I think this investigation is ongoing, and I would expect that eventually we will find the truth", he said.
