UAE hails decisions taken by Saudi Arabia in Khashoggi case

Khashoggi lived in Turkey and was last seen entering the consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago. "Defending freedom of the press is a key priority for Finland", the tweet read.

In an off-record interview to Newsweek magazine prior to his death - which was published on Saturday - Khashoggi described Qahtani and another Saudi top official Turki al-Sheikh as "thuggish".

"It offers no consolation to have Saudi officials confirm what the whole world already knows-Jamal Khashoggi was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul".

He added that discussions with Khashoggi in the consulate "did not go as required and developed in a negative way, leading to a fight" that in turn led to the journalist's death "and to their attempt to hide and cover what happened". "Our condolences go out to them, we feel their pain", Mr Jubeir said.

The Saudis have said Khashoggi was killed in a "fistfight" at its consulate in Istanbul, having previously insisted that he had left the building. "We have nothing to hide", says the crown prince. Gen. Ahmed al-Assiri, the deputy head of Saudi intelligence and a close adviser to the crown prince. "We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said.

Saudi Arabia had rejected as baseless reports that Mr Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate, but had been facing growing pressure to explain what happened to him.

Corker said that if the crown prince had ordered the murder, "he's now crossed the line, and there has to be a punishment and a price to pay for that".

"I don't think it's credible at all", the senator said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - who has remained largely silent, even as Turkey's pro-Government media reported gruesome allegations about how Khashoggi was killed - said he would reveal "necessary details" about the case later in the week.

He said the case should be brought to an worldwide court as Saudi Arabia, as an authoritarian state on its way to reform, would likely hide the truth, as well as the murder mastermind, considering that its national interests were at stake.
