Saudi Arabia preparing to admit journalist Khashoggi was killed - CNN
Saudi Arabia is preparing a report that would admit Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed as the result of an interrogation that went wrong, CNN reported on Monday, citing two unnamed sources.
One source cautioned that the report was still being prepared and could change, CNN said.
The other source said the report would likely conclude that the operation was carried out without clearance and that those involved will be held responsible, the cable news outlet said.
Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump said he had seen a media report that Saudi officials might say missing prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed during unauthorized interrogation, but "nobody knows" if this was an official report.
Trump made the remark in answer to questions from reporters during a visit to Georgia to inspect the devastation caused by Hurricane Michael. Earlier on Monday in Washington, Trump raised the possibility that "rogue killers" could have been responsible.
