Khashoggi murder: Saudi prince 'said he was dangerous Islamist'

Khashoggi murder: Saudi prince 'said he was dangerous Islamist'

That was seven days after the dissident disappeared in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and long before the crown prince acknowledged that Saudi agents killed him.

"The Saudi officials seemed primarily interested in finding out what evidence the Turkish authorities had against the perpetrators". He said the administration is "reviewing putting sanctions on the individuals that we have been able to identify to date that. were engaged in that murder".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman described slain columnist Jamal Khashoggi as a unsafe Islamist in a call with top Donlald Trump administration officials, the Washington Post reported Thursday.

"We were pleased by the invitation extended to us more than two months ago by the kingdom of Saudi Arabia", the delegation said in a statement.

A visit by such prominent non-Muslim leaders, who estimate they represent about 60 million people, is a rare act of religious openness for Saudi Arabia, which hosts the holiest sites in Islam and bans the practice of other religions. Saudi public prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb offered a different explanation last week when he said the killing was premeditated.

According to The Washington Post, Netanyahu has specifically told the White House that the crown prince is a key strategic partner and a linchpin of the US-Israeli front against Iran's regional influence.

"We have requested information from Saudi officials regarding the whereabouts of Jamal Khashoggi's body and the identity of the supposed local collaborator".

But the reported comments, if true, stand in stark contrast to public statements made by the kingdom as it produced a shifting narrative over Khashoggi's disappearance before ultimately acknowledging he was killed in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul amid worldwide outcry. "To claim otherwise would be ridiculous".

Turkey is trying to extradite 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia so they can be tried in a Turkish court.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says a 15-person team came from Riyadh for the premeditated hit.

The Saudis have presented shifting accounts around the death of the 59-year-old journalist, initially denying any knowledge before arguing that a group of rogue operators, many of whom belong to bin Salman's inner circle, were responsible. "We hope the United States reciprocates in kind", Prince Turki, a royal family member, said in remarks at the National Council on U.S.
