Germany may suspend arms deals to punish Saudi Arabia as Trump refuses

Erdogan, Trump hold phone conversation on Khashoggi Saudi Arabia calls Khashoggi killing 'grave mistake,' says prince not aware

Mustafa al-Madani, allegedly a member of a hit team sent to kill Khashoggi, arrived at the Saudi consulate in Instanbul on October 2 around 11 a.m., CNN said, citing Turkish investigators.

According to the senior Saudi official, the Saudi team rolled up Khashoggi's body in a rug, took it out in a consular vehicle and handed it to a "local cooperator" for disposal.

"Why did 15 people come here (from Saudi Arabia) and why were 18 people arrested?" Turkish employees reportedly said they were instructed not to go to work around the time that Khashoggi disappeared.

Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir insisted powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not responsible, despite multiple and conflicting accounts about Mr Khashoggi's killing on October 2.

Germany sold about €530m of mostly aircraft equipment to Saudi Arabia past year, according to its annual European Union declaration. "We are not going to throw our hands in the air and terminate..."

Canada natural disaster MAP: Where has the 6.8 magnitude quake hit in Canada?
No tsunami warnings were issued after a flurry of earthquakes off the Vancouver Island coast last night. At 10:16 p.m., a magnitude 6.8 quake struck the same area at a depth of 13 miles (21 kilometers).

"We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said.

Falih said Saudi Arabia would soon raise output to 11 million barrels per day (bpd) from the current 10.7 million.

"We will continue in that relationship, while we also simultaneously want to get to the bottom of what the facts are about the Khashoggi situation, which is obviously a awful situation", Mnuchin told reporters, adding it would be "premature to comment on sanctions" before a probe into the writer's death is complete.

On Friday, during a roundtable in Arizona, asked if he believed whether the Saudi explanation that Khashoggi was killed during a "fistfight" with more than a dozen agents was credible, he said: "I do. I do".

Khashoggi, a United States resident, entered the consulate on October 2 to obtain documents that would clear the way for his impending marriage to fiancee Hatice Cengiz but never emerged. If the supply gap created by disruption in Libya, Nigeria, Venezuela - as well as USA sanctions against Iran - were to grow as large as 3 million barrels a day, Saudi Arabia would need to tap its oil reserves, he said.

Sports reporter continues live cross after ball hits head
This past Thursday it was Kurt Warner getting "tackled" by former teammate Larry Fitzgerald, and today it was Melissa Stark. Stark was reporting live from Wembley Stadium ahead of the Los Angeles Charges and Tennessee Titans London Games fixture.

So how has Saudi Arabia changed its story since Khashoggi's disappearance was first reported?

But after a Turkish media report claiming Khashoggi's Apple Watch may have captured gruesome audio of him being tortured, drugged, killed and later dismembered, the Saudi government finally admitted the journalist was dead. "So let's hope that the world would deal with the political crisis, including the one with a Saudi citizen in Turkey, with wisdom", he said.

During a joint interview with Britain and France, Mrs Merkel said that she condemned the killing of Mr Khashoggi "in the strongest terms".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced over the weekend that he will reveal the "naked truth" behind Khashoggi's killing on Tuesday.

In a statement Sunday, the governments said attacks on journalists were unacceptable and "of utmost concern to our three nations". While the official report won praise from US President Donald Trump, many politicians and leaders in America and Europe questioned the official explanation that he was accidentally killed in an altercation.
