Trump Says 'Rogue Killers' May Be Behind Jamal Khashoggi's Disappearance

Saudi Arabian King Salman may not tweet often but he gets a bigger response than Donald Trump's regular posts

The statement aired on Saudi Arabian state media came after the country's stock market plunged by almost 7 per cent at one point on Sunday.

Visitors enter the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, Monday, Oct. 15, 2018.

American lawmakers threatened tough punitive action against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain jointly called for a "credible investigation" into Khashoggi's disappearance.

Khashoggi, a USA resident, Washington Post columnist and leading critic of the powerful Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago to get marriage documents.

Khashoggi, a journalist and regular columnist for the Washington Post, failed to emerge after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Jamie Dimon will not be attending "Davos in the desert". The market clawed back a little, but closed 3.5% down for the day.

"His voice was a headache for the Saudi government", said Abdulaziz.

In a "60 Minutes" interview that aired on Sunday, Trump said there would be consequences if it turned out Saudi Arabia had anything to do with Khashoggi's mysterious disappearance.

'Together we must prove we will not be bullied or else, mark my words, once they have finished kicking the kingdom, we will be next in line, ' al-Habtoor said. "We're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment".

Trump said the USA would "get to the bottom of it" and noted there would be "severe punishment" for the Saudis if evidence proved they were involved in the murder of Khashoggi. Analysts also say other American and European companies might follow suit, which could ultimately trigger a decline in capital flows between the USA and the oil-rich kingdom.

While crude prices rose nearly 2 percent after Saudi Arabia pledged to retaliate and said it had an "influential and vital role in the global economy", it's far from certain that it will use energy as a weapon.

According to the kingdom's official SPA news agency, Riyadh said it would retaliate in case any possible economic sanctions were adopted by other states over the case of Khashoggi in what has been seen as an allusion to calls on the USA administration to revoke its hefty arms deals with Saudi Arabia.

The statement did not elaborate.

Trump made a point of visiting the kingdom on his first overseas trip as president and has touted arms sales to Saudi Arabia. "If the price of oil reaching $80 angered President Trump, no one should rule out the price jumping to $100, or $200, or even double that figure", he wrote.

Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund which hosts the conference, has tentatively committed $20 billion to an infrastructure investment planned with Blackstone Group.

The Turkish government has also told the Trump administration that it possesses audio recordings of what occurred inside the consulate that day - evidence that USA officials said supports the conclusion that Khashoggi was interrogated, tortured and then murdered.

The Saudi Embassy in Washington later tweeted what it called a clarification, thanking countries including the United States "for refraining from jumping to conclusions" over the case.
