Son of murdered journalist Khashoggi leaves Saudi Arabia for US

Satirist Known For Saudi Prince Jokes'Undeterred By Khashoggi's Killing Changing story again, Saudi Arabia says killing was planned

Separately, Saudi Crown Prince Mohamad bin Salman on Thursday chaired a meeting of a newly created committee tasked with restructuring the Saudi intelligence apparatus, according to the official Saudi Press Agency.

MbS and Saudi officials continue to deny that the Crown Prince had any involvement in the killing.

After first insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, Saudi authorities said he was killed in an argument that degenerated into a brawl.

"First, we know that killing was in the consulate, which is representative of the state of Saudi Arabia", Callamard said.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in May 2010.

On Thursday, a Saudi public prosecutor said the killing was premeditated, citing the Turkish-Saudi joint probe, Saudi media said.

News of the call appeared to calm growing speculation that Turkey was edging toward implicating the crown prince, whose ambitions for a modernized Saudi Arabia have been undermined by his penchant for making enemies at home and overseas.

Khashoggi, a Saudi insider-turned-critic who worked as a Washington Post columnist, was last seen on 2 October, when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve paperwork for his planned marriage.

Khashoggi did not appear to believe he was going to die, the source said.

The spy chief on Thursday briefed President Donald Trump on Turkey's findings and her discussions, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

Mr. Trump, while he has threatened severe consequences for those responsible for Khashoggi's death, has expressed a reluctance to halt arms sales with the Saudis, emphasizing the economic importance of those transactions to the United States' economy.

Turkish officials and some USA lawmakers allege the crown prince ordered the operation in which Jamal Khashoggi killed.

Turkish officials especially are pushing the Saudi government to identify who ordered the killing.

There was no immediate comment from Saudi officials, but Whitson said that they were apparently allowed to leave after a travel ban on Salah was lifted.

The people outside the consulate, some of whom had travelled from other countries for the vigil, lit candles in front of posters of Khashoggi.

The United States has already taken some steps toward punishing the suspects detained or fired by Saudi Arabia, revoking their visas.

It was not immediately clear how Thursday's announcement from Riyadh would affect Washington's thinking amid bipartisan demands from Congress for severe punishment of Saudi Arabia - the nation at the center of Trump's Middle East policy.
