Jamal Khashoggi's fiancee on his murder - BBC Newsnight

Was Jamal Khashoggi About to Expose Saudi Use of Chemical Weapons in Yemen? Oklahoma senators still support Saudi arms deal after Khashoggi killing

Sources close to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi are saying that it's possible he was killed because he was about to reveal Saudi Arabian use of chemical weapons in Yemen.

When asked who was ultimately responsible for the killing, Ms. Cengiz told Reuters in an interview in Turkish: "This took place inside a Saudi diplomatic mission ..."

Cengiz said she had not been contacted by Prince Mohammed or the Saudi royal family, nor offered any condolences by them.

The two countries have announced a joint investigation of the journalist's killing in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, although Turkey has leaked evidence to the media in an apparent effort to pressure its regional rival over the crime committed by Saudi officials.

But the administration wants to see Saudi Arabia resolve the Qatar crisis and take similar steps toward its widely criticized war in Yemen, according to one USA official who, like the other people cited in this story, asked not to be identified.

Riyadh's shifting explanations about what happened - which U.S. President Trump described as the "worst coverup ever" - have led to serious doubts in the United States and elsewhere about whether Riyadh can conduct a proper investigation into an incident that could implicate its leadership.

"Turkey, with the evidence that they have compiled, will ensure that there is more than one review of what is going on here and I'm certain the investigation will include the evidence that Turkey has put forward so far", Mattis said in the press conference.

Prince Mohammed has denounced the murder as "repulsive" and strongly denied any involvement.

Saudi officials characterize the killing as a rogue operation carried out by Saudi agents who exceeded their authority.

The foreign minister also did not directly respond to questions about how the kingdom would persuade its allies that Crown Prince Mohammed had no ties to the killing.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who Ms. Cengiz praised, has urged Riyadh to disclose who ordered the murder and prosecutors have prepared an extradition request for 18 suspects from Saudi Arabia. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have suggested that the USA end its financial support for Saudi Arabia's war in Yemen, instead. "If only I knew that there were bloodthirsty, evil people waiting inside the consulate for my Jamal, I would have done all I could to prevent him from entering".

"I and my government would like all those responsible, from the person who gave this order to those who carried it out, to be brought to justice and punished under global law", she said.

Ms Cengiz's speech at the memorial, organised in Westminster by the non-profit organisation Middle East Monitor, comes as the investigation into Mr Khashoggi's death inches forwards. But the decision to marry in Istanbul, whose mosques reminded Mr. Khashoggi of his hometown Medina, set off a paper chase that ultimately ended in death.

TRT said the Turkish prosecutor then demanded Mojeb give up any information of the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, who is chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.
