Erdogan to reveal 'naked truth' over Khashoggi death

Amplifying calls for justice in the mysterious death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who Saudi Arabia claims was killed in a brawl after he entered its consulate in Turkey earlier this month, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich gave a blistering response.

Separately, the SPA also reported that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz made a telephone call to Mr Salah Khashoggi, in which the prince expressed his condolences to Salah and his family on the death.

"This was an operation that was a rogue operation", Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News.

"He was killed in the consulate", Jubeir said.

The Saudi authorities at first denied the death of the regime-critical journalist.

Newspaper publishers and editors around the world are demanding Saudi Arabia provide immediate answers in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Saturday branded Saudi Arabia's explanations as not credible and demanded a thorough investigation.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he will reveal details about the Turkish investigation of the alleged murder of the journalist on Tuesday.

The flu is primarily spread person-to-person, mainly by droplets when the infected person coughs, sneezes or even talks. All children aged 2-5 years and not yet in primary school will be offered the vaccine between October and December.

"He's seen as a person who can keep things under check", added Trump.

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.

Sen. Rand Paul told "Fox News Sunday" that the US "cannot continue to have relations with him and so I think he's going to have to be replaced".

This narrative is the latest Saudi account that has changed multiple times. "Yes, I think he did it", Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union".

Britain, Germany and France have issued a joint statement condemning the killing of writer Jamal Khashoggi, saying there is an "urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened".

The latest account includes details on how 15 Saudis sent to confront Khashoggi had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and killed him in a chokehold when he resisted. One of the people involved was said to be a member of Prince Salman's royal entourage.

The Washington Post contributor was allegedly killed during a massive "fistfight" - which the kingdom finally acknowledged early Saturday. Saudi Arabia is a country and MBS is a person.

He described the 33-year-old prince, widely known as MBS, as a "strong person; he has very good control". Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the United States response.
