Jamal Khashoggi,Khashoggi,Khashoggi murder outrage

Turkey is cooperating with other countries in order to raise the issue of murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the United Nations' session, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said.

The call was made by United Nations chief Antonio Guterres who said he had no information on the murder of the journalist in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, except what had been reported in the media. Saudi officials denied that the royal family and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) had any prior knowledge, insisting that Khashoggi died in a "rogue operation", after weeks of claiming he had left the building before vanishing.

"Saudi Arabia still has not told us where the journalist's body is", Cavusoglu said. A team of Saudi agents killed him at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

An anonymous Western intelligence official told the Washington Post, where Khashoggi was a columnist, that secret recordings captured the Saudi murder squad discussing their plans in detail.

Irving tied the game at 108 on his shot with 20.9 seconds left and Redick missed at the buzzer, forcing overtime. The call allowed JJ Redick a trip to the free throw line and increase the lead to five points for Philadelphia.

The newspaper pointed out that the murder has altered the understanding of USA equities with Riyadh and underlined the growing threat posed by regimes that lawlessly pursue their critics beyond their borders, adding that the Senate was right to hold MBS responsible.

Khashoggi's murder prompted an unprecedented worldwide outcry and forced many countries to reassess their ties with Riyadh.

Graham, a vocal critic of Saudi Arabia who is close to Trump, introduced a bipartisan Senate resolution on Thursday meant to hold the Saudi crown prince "accountable" for contributing to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, a blockade of Qatar, the jailing of dissidents and Khashoggi's death.
