What Erdogan did and didn't say on Khashoggi

Kushner has cultivated a close partnership with the heir to the Saudi throne, who is widely suspected of being behind Khashoggi's murder.

There have been many reports, unconfirmed by CBS News, that allege certain details based on Turkish sources.

The Saudi government had said that it had arrested a total of 18 people in connection with the incident.

The Saudi journalist can be seen holding hands with Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz, as they visit the local marriage office and enter their apartment block in the hours leading up to his fatal visit to the consulate.

The Turkish and Saudi versions of Khashoggi's slaying - neither of which is on the record from the officials' governments - do not match.

Before Erdogan's announcement, top Turkish officials said Turkey would clarify exactly what happened to Khashoggi as pressure increased on Saudi Arabia, which is hosting a glitzy investment conference this week that many dignitaries have chose to skip because of the scandal.

Erdogan had remained largely silent in the weeks following Khashoggi's disappearance, but on Sunday, he promised to "reveal" what Turkish investigators had learned about the journalist's death.

Turkey's President Erdogan called on Saudi Arabia to hold those responsible for the murder to account, after promising to rival the "naked truth" about events leading to his death. Foreigners are still net buyers for the year after they accelerated purchases in the first half, when FTSE Russell and MSCI Inc. announced they will upgrade Saudi Arabia to an emerging market starting in 2019.

The murder of the Washington Post contributor has damaged the worldwide reputation of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman who has spearheaded a reform drive in the kingdom.

Britain, Germany and France issued a joint statement condemning the killing and calling for an "urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened".

The chilling meeting followed an address by Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who labelled the death a "savage murder" committed by a team of assassins who carefully planned the killing. For Saudi Arabia's allies, the question will be whether they believe that Prince Mohammed, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability.

Kushner on Monday fended off criticism that the Trump administration was giving Saudi Arabia cover. 'Will they now end arms sales to Saudi Arabia?' he asked. "What are you going to do?"

Mr Erdogan called for an independent commission to be set up but said he was confident in King Salman's full co-operation. Khashoggi started yelling and was then put in a chokehold "to prevent him from yelling". It also contradicted two Saudi officials' comments to Reuters that it was a chokehold that killed him.

A member of the team dressed in Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate. CNN has broadcast footage of this exit.

Turkish investigators have released some information, saying the writer was tricked into going to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, where a 15-man hit team was waiting for him.

In the next few days, Erdogan said he will explain how the Saudis covered up the killing.

"The Saudis are playing the Russian card to scare the Americans", Barmin said.

"Why has the consulate general building not been opened right away but days after? Why has the body of someone, the killing of whom has been officially admitted, not been found?" He also didn't present any physical evidence from the investigation. "Who are these people receiving orders from?"
