Trump vows 'severe punishment' if Saudi killed missing journalist

In a "60 Minutes" interview, President Donald Trump said the incident was "being investigated" and warned that "there will be severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia was involved with Khashoggi's death. The President said that Cengiz wrote "a lovely letter" to him and first lady Melania Trump and that they would welcome her.

Interior Minister Prince Abdel Aziz bin Saud bin Nayef slammed claims that the kingdom ordered Khashoggi to be killed inside the consulate as "baseless allegations and lies".

Turkey expects cooperation from Saudi Arabia on the case of a prominent missing journalist, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saturday.

At a White House event with USA pastor Andrew Brunson, who arrived in Washington after being freed in Turkey, Trump said China and Russian Federation would be ready to swoop in and get the business. There is also evidence of the moment that Khashoggi was killed, the source said.

Mr Trump indicated earlier this week he was reluctant to pull out of a multi-billion-dollar USA weapons deal with the Saudis to show White House anger if the missing journalist was killed by the Saudis.

A joint statement of condemnation is also being discussed by USA and European diplomats if it is confirmed that Mr Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents.

Their arrival came a day after a senior Saudi royal figure, Prince Khaled al-Faisal, was said to have briefly visited Turkey amid signs that the Saudi monarchy was seeking an urgent solution to the diplomatic crisis between the two countries.

'What has been circulating about orders to kill [Khashoggi] are lies and baseless allegations against the government of the kingdom, which is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with global laws and conventions, ' Prince Abdulaziz said. He said the deal was worth hundreds of thousands of United States jobs.

No fans, no goals: Croatia and England's surreal encounter
Marcus Rashford squanders two opportunities as England draw 0-0 with Croatia in their second UEFA Nations League outing. However, whilst Sancho was the only one of these players to make an appearance, creativity was not the main problem.

He urged it to do so and allow Turkish officials to enter the consulate.

In a statement posted on Twitter, the Saudis welcomed the joint effort and said the kingdom was keen "to sustain the security and safety of its citizenry, wherever they might happen to be".

When asked if he would impose sanctions on the Saudis, he said it "depends on what the sanction is".

" Boeing, Lockheed, Raytheon -all these companies-I don't want to hurt jobs. All they're going to do is give it to other countries, and I think that would be very foolish".

Cengiz, who was waiting outside the consulate, says she did not see him re-emerge. "We got it, and we got all of it, every bit of it".

The President added, "There's a lot at stake".

The spokesman of Erdogan's ruling party, Omer Celik, acknowledged Saturday that there were "extremely sensational claims" about Khashoggi's fate in the media and said there would be "severe consequences" for anyone found responsible if they were true.

He said that, once it was clear what had happened to Mr Khashoggi, governments should decide "in the appropriate way" whether to attend an investment conference to be held in the Saudi capital Riyadh this month.
