  • UN urges international inquiry on Khashoggi killing

At the same time, Turkey outraged by the killing on its soil claimed to have an audio tape of the killing and CCTV footages that in reality, Khashoggi was brutally murdered and the Kingdom preplanned it, which contradicted the Saudi account of an accidental killing.

"I do believe that it's really needed in terms of ensuring what really happened and who are the responsible for that bad killing".

Istanbul's chief prosecutor on Wednesday issued arrest warrants for two Saudi Arabian citizens over the killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a local newspaper reported.

Haspel's absence from that briefing angered senators.

Qualcomm announces Snapdragon 855 processor with 5G and performance improvements
Reports have said that the Galaxy S10 will have a special 5G variant, which will launch in markets like US, South Korea first. What we do know is that the 855 will probably power the bulk of next year's high-end smartphones (because what else would?).

The unusual vote last week came shortly after a briefing by Trump's Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, who urged lawmakers not to do anything to undermine the U.S. -Saudi relationship.

The senators--Republicans Lindsey Graham, Marco Rubio, and Todd Young, along with Democrats Dianne Feinstein, Ed Markey, and Chris Coons--make clear this is a message about the USA standing up for "who we are and what we believe".

Following a private Central Intelligence Agency briefing on Tuesday, republican senator Lindsey Graham said he had "high confidence" the Saudi leader had a role in the murder and added "you have to be wilfully blind" to disagree. They did so against the advice of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, who said USA involvement in the Yemen conflict is central to the Trump administration's broader goal of containing Iranian influence in the Middle East.

"And we're going to continue to press for answers".

Israel launches operation to destroy Hezbollah tunnels
It began when Hezbollah militants launched a raid into Israel, killing eight soldiers and kidnapping two others, who also died. He adds that military officials are urging people to go about their business as normal, saying the tunnels are not in use.

"I think we have lost a lot of our moral high ground", McCaskill said on the day of the vote.

It was unclear whether Khalid knew that Khashoggi would be killed, the USA newspaper said, but he made the call at the discretion of his brother, MBS.

"They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran", Trump said in the statement. "The United States intends to remain a steadfast partner of Saudi Arabia to ensure the interests of our country, Israel and all other partners in the region".

"Somebody should be punished", Republican Senator Richard Shelby said.

USA urged to send Ebola experts in as DRC outbreak worsens
Congo's health ministry said the number of confirmed and probable Ebola cases has reached 426, edging past the Uganda outbreak in 2000.

"There's a consensus among a lot of us that we want to suspend arms sales and stop support for the war - how do you best do that?" said Sen. "Now the question is how do you separate the Saudi crown prince and his group from the nation itself?" "We're trying to get everything together so we do something constructive". About his disappearance became known after he, along with the bride called for the building of the Consulate of Saudi Arabia.
