  • Dem Rep Has 'Irresponsible' Theory: Jared Kushner Orchestrated Journalist's Death in Saudi Arabia Consulate

"Defending freedom of the press is a key priority for Finland", the tweet read.

The kingdom announced the arrest of 18 Saudis in connection with their probe and the sacking of two top officials linked to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has faced mounting pressure over the journalist's disappearance.

"This was an operation that was a rogue operation, this was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding their authorities and responsibilities they had; they made a mistake when they killed Jamal Khashoggi in the consulate and they tried to cover up for it", he said.

The senator has taken a particularly strong stance against the prince in recent days, condemning him for Khashoggi's death which occurred after the journalist entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey earlier this month. Ever since he disappeared on October 2 while visiting the mission, Saudi officials have repeatedly said that he left the consulate alive and that they had no information about his whereabouts or fate.

Kushner does have close ties to the Saudis and its crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, but there has been no evidence that he has any involvement with the suspected murder of Khashoggi.

Turkish officials said they have audio and video proof that Khashoggi's body was dismembered. "We have nothing to hide", says the crown prince.

It added Royal court advisor Saud al-Qahtani and intelligence chief Ahmed Amiri have been saved from their positions. U.S. President Donald Trump had also talked about possibly punishing Saudi Arabia, though said he didn't want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia because, he maintained, it would harm U.S. manufacturers.

Al-Jubeir added that Saudi Arabia was working on finding out the location of Khashoggi's body and determining the full details into what happened.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said many questions "remain unanswered", echoing calls for an investigation.

Sheikh Abdullah concluded his statement by asking God Almighty to preserve the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, its leadership and people, and to protect them from any harm.

"Do I think he did it?"

The decision to overhaul the intelligence apparatus and sack members of the crown prince's inner circle is created to "distance the crown prince from the murder", analysis firm Eurasia Group said.
