Jamal Khashoggi killing: Turkey issues arrest warrant for Saudi prince allies

Senator Bob Corker after being briefed by the CIA

Sen. Richard Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, said in a statement that "every Senator should hear what I heard this afternoon".

Panelist and Washington Post columnist David Ignatius, a former colleague of journalist Jamal Khashoggi who was allegedly murdered at the order of the Saudi crown prince, interjected with his perspective.

Bin Salman has denied any knowledge of the plot to torture, murder and dismember Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Turkey in October and the USA has waffled on whether it believes his denials.

Khashoggi's killing prompted worldwide outrage over Saudi Arabia's heavy-handed tactics and renewed attention to the Saudi-led war in Yemen.

"I'll tell you what I did think: I think when you have a classified Central Intelligence Agency briefing you don't come out of the room and talk about it", Blunt said on Wednesday. "The motion to proceed's going to pass, and we're going to be in a fearless new world", the Connecticut Democrat told Roll Call on Tuesday.

Absent from Canada's sanction list was the crown prince.

The strong comments are the latest development in a controversy that has been building over the last two months as the Saudis have offered changing explanations about the disappearance and murder of Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

The surgical team had to connect the donor's uterus with the veins, arteries, ligaments, and vaginal canal of the recipient. Tullius said, including those born without a uterus or those who have had hysterectomies for cancer-related reasons.

"But at the same time, it's sort of hard to call this a cover up given the fact that everybody in that briefing last week knew that Pompeo and Mattis were misleading us, knew there was no way this murder happened without the consent and direction of MBS".

Corker was among the senators who participated in a briefing earlier Tuesday with CIA Director Gina Haspel about the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "You have to be willfully blind" not to see it. Graham said that may be true, but there is certainly a "smoking bonesaw", alluding to the murder weapon suspected to have killed Khashoggi.

Sean Penn is making a documentary about the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reports.

Tuesday's briefing came a week after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defence James Mattis had told senators that there was no hard evidence MBS was behind the killing and urged senators not to downgrade ties with Saudi Arabia over the incident.

The pair were removed from their positions in October while Saudi Arabia has detained 21 people and says it is seeking the death penalty for five over the slaying, which sparked global outrage. In recent months, Mattis - a former Marine four-star popular with lawmakers - has defended other politically controversial moves by the Trump administration, like troop deployments to the US border and plans to reorganize the military for a Space Force. Following the briefing, a handful of senators said they believe that MBS ordered the hit on Khashoggi. Graham voted in favor of the resolution. "But since I have such respect for them, I'm going to assume they are being good soldiers ..."

"The prosecution's move to issue arrest warrants for Asiri and Qahtani reflects the view that the Saudi authorities won't take formal action against those individuals", one unnamed Turkish official told Reuters.
