Jamal Khashoggi case: All the latest updates
Turkish security source says Gina Haspel, who visited Turkey last week, has seen all evidence in connection to killing.
Saudi Arabia has admitted Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside its consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul. Khashoggi - a Saudi writer, US resident and Washington Post columnist - entered the building on October 2 to obtain documentation certifying he had divorced his ex-wife so he could remarry. After weeks of repeated denials that it had anything to do with his disappearance, the kingdom eventually acknowledged that the murder was premeditated. The whereabouts of his body are still unknown Egypt’s leader faults media coverage of Khashoggi slaying The president of Egypt has said media coverage played a “negative role” in the case of Khashoggi. “We need to stop and wait for the relevant authorities and judicial bodies (in Saudi Arabia) to announce the outcome of the investigations,” Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi told reporters on Tuesday. Last month, Egypt called for a transparent investigation into the disappearance of the journalist and warned against the case being used to politically exploit Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia and Egypt have a close relationship. The kingdom has given Egypt billions of dollars in aid in recent years. EU urges Saudi cooperation with Turkish authorities The European Commission has called on Saudi Arabia to collaborate with Turkish authorities on investigating the killing of the Saudi journalist. “We expect Saudi institutions to provide all the information they have about the case and ensure that those responsible are brought to justice. This needs to be done in full collaboration with the Turkish authorities,” commission spokesperson Maja Kocijancic said on Tuesday. “From the very beginning, we have been asking Saudi Arabia to shed light on the killing of Jamal Khashoggi through a full credible, transparent and prompt investigation,” she added. In a non-binding resolution on October 25, the European Parliament condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the reported torture and killing of the journalist. The parliament urged an “independent and impartial”, international probe of the killing, also warning that targeted sanctions could be imposed if Saudi agents are found guilty in his death.
