Donald Trump: Jamal Khashoggi Not a U.S. Citizen

Khashoggi was tortured before being killed: report

Pompeo visits Turkey in bid to defuse Khashoggi outcry

"We will probably know that by the end of the week", Trump said.

After Pompeo's meetings with the king and crown prince on Tuesday, Pompeo said Saudi Arabia has committed to conducting a full investigation.

Pro-government Turkish media published gruesome new allegations that Mr Khashoggi was killed by a Saudi assassination squad, some of whom The New York Times said were tied to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The newspaper said Saudi Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi could be heard on the tape, telling those allegedly torturing Mr. Khashoggi: "Do this outside; you're going to get me in trouble".

Mexican ambassador makes a stunning accusation about migrant caravan from Honduras
The first US-bound caravan that's packed with Honduran migrants has reached Mexico's southern border, according to a report. Officials in Mexico said anyone in the Honduran caravan who had proper documents could enter the country.

The president said that his own comment Monday about possible "rogue killers" behind Khashoggi's disappearance was informed by his "feeling" from his conversation with Salman, and that the King did not use the term.

Atop the opinion piece, titled "What the Arab world needs most is free expression", Karen Attiah, the Global Opinions editor, shared a note explaining that the newspaper initially postponed releasing the piece "because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together".

Reporters at the White House asked Trump why he did not send the FBI to investigate Khashoggi's disappearance, as he was a resident of the state of Virginia.

When asked what gave him the benefit of the doubt in believing Saudi Arabia's account that it was not involved in Khashoggi's disappearance, Pompeo said, "I'm waiting for the investigation to be completed". In August, U.S. officials hailed the Saudi pledge and said the United States would use $230 million earmarked to help stabilize Syria for other purposes.

Washington Post: "Saudi Arabia is putting money in Trump's pocket. We're not there to tell them how to run their country or organize their society.' That policy's never been rescinded, and that's what we have always done".

As they cut off Mr. Khashoggi's head and dismembered his body, a doctor of forensics who had been brought along for the dissection and disposal had some advice for the others, according to the senior Turkish official.

How to watch LeBron James' Lakers debut vs. Trail Blazers
LeBron couldn't get the Lakers over the line against the Pacers. "I liked the way we shared the ball at times, as well". The lengthy wing had a strong preseason, averaging 17.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 25.7 minutes per game.

On Tuesday, a high-level Turkish official told the AP that police found "certain evidence" of Mr. Khashoggi's slaying at the consulate, without elaborating.

The reluctance of the Turks to turn over hard evidence they have said they have documenting Khashoggi's fate has led US and European security officials to assess that the most brutal accounts of Khashoggi's demise are likely accurate, the sources said.

Mr. Trump stopped short of saying the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was responsible for Mr. Khashoggi's death.

The Saudi government is in hot water over the Khashoggi incident which is suspected of a being a brutal murder.

But an 11-member Saudi investigation team has arrived at the Saudi consul's Istanbul residence on Wednesday, broadcaster CNN Turk reported.

Trump foe Senator Chris Murphy (Democrat-Connecticut) said the Khashoggi case "should trigger a fundamental review of the nature of the United States' alliance with the Saudis".
