Suspects in Saudi journalist case tied to top prince - report - worldwide

Suspects in Saudi journalist case tied to top prince - report - worldwide

A spokesperson for Hyperloop One said the company "did not have a contract signed nor have we been notified that the contract is cancelled", adding that they have asked the paper to publish a correction.

Foreign Minister Mike Pompeo, wrapping up a trip to Saudi Arabia and Turkey to discuss the crisis over the missing journalist, made a point to stress areas where the kingdom and America cooperate.

Trump ally Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of SC and one of the kingdom's biggest defenders, angrily rejected the Saudi denials that Trump repeated. The discrepancy in attention is sad, she said, and as a fellow critic of the Saudi regime, she feels more vulnerable seeing how far Riyadh now appears willing to go to silence dissent, potentially with worldwide acquiescence.

US officials say they are taking Khashoggi's disappearance seriously, but Trump says he has not sent the Federal Bureau of Investigation, stressing that he was not "American citizen". And he has cautioned against rushing to blame Saudi leaders, telling the Associated Press news agency that they were being treated as "guilty until proven innocent".

"We are going to try to get to the bottom of it very soon".

"The best metaphor for Mr. Pompeo's diplomacy seemed to be what reporters witnessed outside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, where Mr. Khashoggi was last seen October 2: the arrival of a cleaning crew with buckets, mops and fluids".

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo yesterday arrived in Ankara from Riyadh for talks with the Turkish leadership, saying Saudi Arabia had promised a full investigation into the case.

"I know the bloom is off the rose with the crown prince", Giuliani said.

Kushner was pictured Wednesday wearing casual clothing, casting a smile and sporting blue suede sneakers, as new reports emerged that Khashoggi suffered gruesome torture and recorded his own interrogation before his disappearance.

"The New York Times" reported that Turkish officials have said there are recordings of Mr Khashoggi's murder and dismemberment within the consulate. Trump has resisted any action, pointing to huge US weapons deals pending with Saudi Arabia and saying that sanctions could end up hurting the American economy.

The next Mega Millions drawing, scheduled for Tuesday, will be worth an estimated $654 million, officials said. The winning numbers drawn Friday for Mega Millions are 4, 24, 46, 61, 70 and the Mega Ball number is 7.

The response so far has consisted in part of President Trump pushing for more time and noting that Khashoggi, who resided in Virginia, was not a U.S. citizen and underlining the crucial nature of U.S. -Saudi Arabia trade relationship.

Turkish officials have said Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudis' Istanbul consulate, which Saudi officials have denied.

Turkish investigators on Wednesday scoured the residence of Saudi consul general Mohammed al-Otaibi for evidence in the case, after doing the same at the consulate Tuesday.

When asked what gave him the benefit of the doubt in believing Saudi Arabia's account that it was not involved in Khashoggi's disappearance, Pompeo said, "I'm waiting for the investigation to be completed". Trump appeared willing to resist the pressure to follow suit, accepting Saudi denials and their pledge to investigate.

The newspaper said it gathered more information about the suspects through facial recognition software, a database of Saudi cell phone numbers, leaked Saudi government documents, witnesses and media. It was the second-such extraordinary search of land considered under global law to be Saudi sovereign soil after Turkish police searched the consulate through the early morning on Tuesday.

Saudi officials have not responded to repeated requests for comment from the AP in recent days.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said his plans to attend an investment conference in Riyadh next week would be revisited on Thursday after U.S. officials have a chance to consult Pompeo.

Pompeo said the Saudis committed to holding accountable "anyone connected to any wrongdoing that may be found", making no exceptions for anyone, including members of the royal family.

Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the 33-year-old crown prince, said the United States has asked Turkey for any audio or video evidence.
