Erdogan advisor: Khashoggi's body was 'dissolved' after murder

Jamal Khashoggi's fiancee and others will speak about his life and legacy on Friday, one month after he was killed in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

Instead of backing off Prince Mohammed, the USA hopes to capitalize on what it regards as new leverage with Saudi Arabia to end the brutal civil war in Yemen and ease a regional standoff with Qatar, according to multiple U.S. and diplomatic officials.

The official was cited as saying that "biological evidence" found in the consulate's garden indicated the body was likely disposed of near where Khashoggi was killed.

Late last month, Prince Mohammed said that "the crime was painful to all Saudis".

US media reported on Thursday that MBS described Khashoggi as a "dangerous Islamist" in a phone call with Jared Kushner and John Bolton, US President Donald Trump's son-in-law and national security adviser respectively, days after Khashoggi's disappearance and before Saudi Arabia publicly acknowledged his killing. The killing of Khashoggi is inexplicable.

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood".

The opinion piece was published less than 24-hours after one of his advisers said Saudi government operatives had "dissolved" Khashoggi's body after murdering and dismembering him. "He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years", the family said.

There is still no consensus on how Khashoggi died. Where is Khashoggi's body?

On October 6, Saudi Arabia's consul-general in Istanbul, Mohammad al Otaibi, opened up his mission to Reuters in an attempt to show that Khashoggi was not on the premises, and claimed that talk of the journalist's abduction was groundless.

Khashoggi went to the consulate to retrieve paperwork for his pending marriage and never emerged from the building. It later admitted he had been murdered, saying the killing was premeditated and a result of a "rogue operation".

It's also in Minya where most acts of violence, like attacks on churches and Christian homes and businesses take place. Another 18 people, including children, were wounded in the most serious attack on the minority in more than a year.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects so they can be put on trial in Turkey. The delegation met with other Saudi officials, but bin Salman - who is second only behind the king - was the most prominent.

The story was undercut by footage, which Erdogan confirmed, of a Saudi official acting as a body double for Khashoggi, wearing the journalist's clothes when leaving the consulate to pretend to be the dead man.

Upon receiving a leadership award from the International Women's Media Foundation, Ryan said the slain journalist "told the truth about Saudi Arabia's continued repression of women". However, he also said he was unwilling to sacrifice lucrative arms deals with the country.

"The region in the Middle East, with the DP World Tour Championship [in Dubai later this month] coming up is very important to the European Tour", Pelley said.

"Jamal Khashoggi was not a risky person in any way possible".

On Wednesday, France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said Khashoggi's death was a "crime" and "odious".

The Saudi government has said it will carry out a thorough and transparent investigation and that the suspects will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia.

"Because the larger problem is Iran", he said.

During the call, Salman stressed the importance of maintaining a US-Saudi Alliance.
