Saudis to admit Khashoggi died during interrogation, says CNN

US President Donald Trump earlier Monday said he had spoken with Saudi Arabia's King Salman who strongly denied the kingdom's involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance.

But in the wake of Khashoggi's disappearance, many media and entertainment companies have been distancing themselves from the kingdom.

On 2 October 2018, Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in order to obtain the forms he needed to marry his Turkish fiancée.

Turkish authorities have said he was killed at the consulate.

Saudi officials have flatly denied the allegation and claimed Khashoggi left the consulate but failed to provide definitive proof.

"The king firmly denied any knowledge of it", Trump told reporters, saying he didn't "want to get into [Salman's] mind", but said: "It sounded to me like maybe these could have been "rogue killers".

Speaking in Toronto Monday, Trudeau said Canada will not be silenced by human rights abusers like Saudi Arabia and its leader, Mohammad Bin Salman - the young crown prince who has sought to modernize his deeply religious country but has bristled at criticism from overseas. The sources said the interrogation was meant to lead to his enforced return to Saudi Arabia. According to CNN, the report will likely claim the interrogation was conducted without clearance or transparency.

The Red Sox said: "It is an Major League Baseball matter, so no one from the Red Sox would be commenting". They got a runner on with two outs and Rafael Devers got a hit to put runners on first and second.

Trump said Pompeo may go to Turkey after Saudi Arabia. The Saudi regime has come under intense pressure to prove that Khashoggi left the consulate alive. The affair has created a diplomatic rift between Saudi Arabia and the West and led to worldwide firms pulling out of a high-profile summit in Riyadh.

Trump called Khashoggi's disappearance a "terrible situation". He was undertaking a flurry of engagements with top officials in Saudi Arabia on Tuesday. It reported that Saba, the Yemeni news agency, said the kingdom is "being subjected to malicious and prejudicial tendencies due to its honorable and honest positions with issues regarding the Arab and Islamic nation and its leading roles in regional and worldwide stability". "Our family is traumatized, and yearns to be together during this painful time". The state-run Saudi Press Agency released a statement warning that if it "receives any action, it will respond with greater action, and that the kingdom's economy has an influential and vital role in the global economy". These issues are long-running and stem-at least at a strategic level-from Saudi Arabia's concern over Turkey's push to reassert itself, at the Saudis expense, as the primary geopolitical leader of the Islamic world. Saudi Arabia, meanwhile, said King Salman thanked Erdogan "for welcoming the kingdom's proposal" for forming the working group.

Turkish police investigators entered the Istanbul consulate late on Monday.

Manchester United did not comment on Monday night about reports that Saudi Arabia is interested in buying the club. As if to drive the point home, a cleaning crew with mops, trash bags and cartons of milk walked in, past journalists waiting outside the consulate on Monday.

A Spanish government spokeswoman has urged Turkey and Saudi Arabia to launch an "open, transparent" investigation into the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi almost two weeks ago. A Saudi official said the kingdom has begun an investigation ordered by the king and could hold people accountable if evidence warrants it. At least some of them appear to have high-level connections in the Saudi government.

However, International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde told reporters Saturday at the IMF's annual meeting in Indonesia she still planned to go but would be paying close attention to new information about Khashoggi's disappearance.
