After Khashoggi murder, Saudi Arabia tortured and killed another journalist

Traces of acid, chemicals found in Saudi consul’s home – source Cops Find Acid Used to Dissolve Journo’s Body at Saudi Consul’s Home - Reports

A Democratic lawmaker at the US House of Representatives is reportedly planning to introduce a bill that bans Saudi Arabia from acquiring nuclear weapons in retaliation for the regime's murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"We gave the tapes".

"We gave the recordings, we gave them to Saudi Arabia, we gave them to Washington, to the Germans, to the French, to the English".

In this image made from a March 2018 video provided by Metafora Production, Jamal Khashoggi speaks during an interview at an undisclosed location.

The news website said the Turkish prosecutor's office has reached the conclusion after investigators found traces of acid in the Saudi consul general's residence and the drains connected to it, in Istanbul.

The voice attributed to a Saudi forensic evidence chief also suggests that others witnessing Khashoggi's harrowing fate listened to music in order to drown out the sounds.

However, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has accused the "highest levels" of the Saudi government of ordering the hit, while some officials have pointed the finger at the all-powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Louise also spotted Kendall and Gigi, as well as Bella Hadid , Behati Prinsloo, Martha Hunt, Candice Swanepoel, and Romee Strijd. Two years ago the Hadid sisters, Gigi and Bella , made history as the first sisters to walk the Victoria's Secret runway.

Saudi officials have waffled over what happened - initially claiming he left the consulate in Istanbul, then saying he was killed in a "rogue operation".

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 after entering the consulate to obtain documents for marriage procedures.

US President Donald Trump, meanwhile, has oscillated between statements backing MBS's version of events and pouring scorn on the official lines coming out of Riyadh.

"There's no need to distort this issue, they know for certain that the killer, or the killers, is among these 15 people".

Mr Khashoggi was killed by Saudi officials inside the country's consulate in Istanbul last month.

Turki told the International Peace Institute think tank Friday that Khashoggi was the Saudi embassy spokesman when he was ambassador to the United States and Britain, and they had been "very friendly over the years". "Saudi Arabia could resolve this by making this 15 talk", Erdoğan said.
