Central Intelligence Agency finds MBS texted to Khashoggi hit squad leader

Jamal Khashoggi Murder Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Sent Messages to His Advisor Charged With Supervising Crime Shortly Before Journalist's Killing Claims Report

The Turkish leader stated that Ankara mobilised all efforts since the brutal killing of the Washington Post columnist inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Another excerpt reportedly states that the Central Intelligence Agency has "medium-to-high confidence" that Prince Mohammed "personally targeted" Khashoggi and "probably ordered his death".

Speaking to reporters in Buenos Aires, Erdogan said that solving the Khashoggi killing would also be in the interest of the Saudi royal family, Reuters reported.

The Gulf kingdom's public prosecutor has said Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate as a result of a "rogue operation" on the orders of an intelligence officer.

A video of their chat is believed to show the French leader chiding the prince over the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Meanwhile Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has told CNN that he saw all the intelligence held by the U.S. on the killing and said there was no direct evidence linking Prince Mohammed to the murder. The resolution advanced even as the administration vowed to stand by Saudi Arabia following global outcry over the killing of Khashoggi.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman during the G-20 summit on November 30, 2018 in Buenos Aires. "It remains an important relationship, and we're aiming to keep that relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia".

Representatives from Elysee Palace, the official residence of the president of France, told Reuters that during the exchange, Macron conveyed "very firm" messages to the prince over the killing of the journalist as well as the need to find a solution to the political situation in Yemen. "For Turkey, the incident is and will remain a flagrant murder within the Islamic world".

Trump U-TURN as US President meets Putin on sidelines of G20 Summit
But ahead of the summit's official start Mr Trump signed a trade deal with the Mexican and Canadian leaders. The White House confirmed that Trump and Putin spoke during a dinner with world leaders at the G20 summit .

US President Donald Trump, Prince Mohammed's most vocal backer, did not have time for a one-on-one meeting.

The visit comes after Prince Mohammed's attendance at the G20 summit in Argentina, where he represented Saudi Arabia.

He described Saudi Arabia's response to the killing as "unbelievable".

The crown prince is also working to fix his image at home and overseas.

The US Senate, meanwhile, pushed forward last week - despite opposition from Trump - with a resolution that would end American military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen, a conflict which has cause a major humanitarian crisis.

Earlier on Saturday, the Wall Street Journal reported that Prince Mohammed sent 11 messages to his closest adviser, who reportedly oversaw the operatives who killed Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman has also issued a directive to renovate the King Faisal Mosque.

The Saudi leader is reported to have told associates in August previous year that if efforts failed to persuade Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia, he would be lured somewhere else.
