CNN releases video of alleged Khashoggi body double in Istanbul

Spain not stopping arms sales to Saudi Arabia over Khashoggi killing

The footage obtained by CNN, showed a man of similar age and physique to the Saudi journalist, who was one of 15 operatives who flew to Istanbul the same day Khashoggi arrived at the Saudi consulate.

Indonesian President Joko Widodo called for a "transparent and thorough" investigation of the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a meeting on Monday with Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, the foreign minister of the Asian nation said.

Turkish authorities will interview an additional 28 consulate staff members on Monday as part of the investigation, state broadcaster TRT said.

According to the report, registration documents showed that the vehicle belonged to the Saudi consulate. They say they are in possession of audio and video evidence to back up the claim but have not released any proof.

Turkish officials believe Mr Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the Saudi government, was murdered by a team of Saudi agents inside the building.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who has said the United States would consider sanctions against Saudi Arabia, emphasized on Saturday that he was not satisfied with the Saudis' handling of the case.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he would provide a full account of Khashoggi's death in a speech slated for Tuesday.

If Theresa May does decide to change her approach towards dealing with Riyadh, it would mark an important and welcome shift after years of attempts by campaigners to force the British government to take Saudi abuses both at home and overseas seriously.

-Oct. 6: The Post, citing anonymous Turkish officials, reports Khashoggi may have been killed in the consulate in a "preplanned murder" by a Saudi team.

After weeks of denying any knowledge of Khashoggi's whereabouts, the Saudi government admitted on Friday that he had died in the diplomatic compound.

German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier underlined that point on Monday, calling for a joint European position as Germany "won't at this point approve any further arms exports because we want to know what happened".

Several of Saudi Arabia's regional allies have come out in its support. "It's only a first step, but it's a big first step".

A leading Republican U.S. senator said he believed the crown prince was behind the killing, adding that the Saudis had lost all credibility in their explanations of his death.

Also Sunday, images that were obtained by TRT World, a Turkish news channel that broadcasts in English, showed Khashoggi as he arrived at a police barrier before entering the consulate on October 2. When the media reported a few days later that he had been killed there, they called the accusations "baseless". "I do." But he said before he decided what to do next, he wanted to talk to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The king also ordered a restructuring of the intelligence service, to be led by Prince Mohammed, suggesting the prince still retained wide-ranging authority.

After Saudi Arabia confirmed his death, she wrote on Twitter in Arabic: "They have taken your body from this world, but your handsome smile will stay in my world forever". Retno said the visit was scheduled after the Saudi monarch visited Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim-majority nation, in March a year ago.

Turkish investigators are likely to find out what happened to the corpse "before long", a senior Turkish official said on Saturday.
