Saudis reject threats as stocks plunge after Trump comments

Saudis reject threats as stocks plunge after Trump comments

Saudi and Turkish officials have not yet commented on the Sabah report. This time, however, it acknowledged for the first time that Saudi Arabia was accused of killing Khashoggi.

Mr Khashoggi has not been seen or heard from since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Citing an "official source", the Saudi Press Agency added that Riyadh "affirms its total rejection of any threats and attempts to undermine it".

But, he has told CBS' "60 Minutes", "Could it be them?"

Cengiz also didn't just call for an investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, she urged for the responsible party, "irrespective of their political positions", to be punished.

The statement, by British Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt, France's Jean-Yves Le Drian and Germany's Heiko Maas, made no mention of potential actions the countries might take.

The apparent threat of economic retaliation from the world's top oil exporter came after a turbulent day on the Saudi stock exchange, which plunged as much as 7 per cent at one point.

Cengiz said she and the journalist would have been married this week and had planned a life together split between Istanbul and the United States, where Khashoggi had been living in self-imposed exile since a year ago.

Where do things stand with Jimmy Butler's trade request?
It is unclear if Butler made his full-time return to the Timberwolves season or just proved a point of some kind in the practice. Wojnarowski reports that Butler at one point screamed at Layden, telling him, "You [expletive] need me".

CNN announced Friday that it wouldn't participate, the company reported, along with the New York Times and others.

"We're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment", Trump vowed. The journalist was last seen there on October 2.

"The rest is history: He never walked out of that building".

Kudlow, director of the National Economic Council, told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on "This Week" Sunday that Mnuchin told him Saturday night he intends to go on the trip to the Future Investment Initiative, also known as "Davos in the Desert", "because of the importance of the issue of ending terrorist financing".

Turkish sources claim he was killed by a hit squad of Saudi agents.

She had appealed for help to Trump, who earlier this week said he would invite her to the White House.

"Today is Jamal's birthday". "I actually think we'd be punishing ourselves if we did that".

"If he is dead, and I hope that is not the case, thousands of Jamals will be born today". "Certainly our involvement in Yemen with Saudi Arabia will be effected. Tyrants eventually pay for their sins".

The prime minister also says Canada has "serious issues" around reports about the disappearance of USA journalist Jamal Khashoggi, although he says there is still more to learn before he'll comment further. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that if journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed by Saudis, the U.S. should distance itself from the Middle Eastern kingdom and cut ties to the war in Yemen.
