@izzythepush,
Still the House and Senate are quiet about Khashoggi's murder.

@glitterbag,
When did Iran last coax an American journalist into their embassy to murder him?

Khashoggi was working for the Washington Post which makes him an American journalist in my book.

@izzythepush,
Yes, he's considered an American journalist and he had resident status. Something terrible will happen before the American public wakes up.

@glitterbag,
According to the latest diplomatic leaks Trump scrapped the Iran deal just to spite Obama. He's an idiot.

A jailed Saudi women's rights activist has been offered release if she agrees to say she was not tortured, her sister has alleged.

Loujain al-Hathloul, who campaigned to win Saudi women the right to drive, was detained this year for conspiring with "hostile entities".

Her family says she has been tortured and sexually assaulted in custody, which the Saudi government denies.

Officials have so far not responded to BBC questions about the new claims.

A Turkish newspaper has published new details of a recording which reportedly captured the final moments of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The prominent government critic was killed in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul last October.

The pro-government Sabah newspaper says the transcript is from a recording taken inside and later obtained by Turkish intelligence.

It includes information such as the journalist's alleged last words.

The Sabah has consistently made international headlines by carrying details - including some that have been disputed - about the journalist's mysterious death.

The newspaper published two new reports this week into Khashoggi's death at the hands of a group they label a "hit squad".

Their latest report details information from the alleged recording.

It includes details such as a forensic expert, part of a team sent from Saudi Arabia, allegedly referring to the journalist as an "animal to be sacrificed" prior to his arrival.

The Sabah report says Khashoggi, once inside in the consulate, became suspicious and was told he had to return to Riyadh because of an Interpol order.

The journalist allegedly refused to comply with the group's requests, which included texting his son, and was then drugged, according to the newspaper.

He reportedly then told his killers, in his last words, to not keep his mouth closed because of his asthma, but then lost consciousness.

Khashoggi was suffocated with a bag put over his head, the Sabah reports, with the sounds of a scuffle allegedly picked up by the recording.

They newspaper also alleges the tape captured his alleged dismemberment at the hands of the forensic expert.

Reports of the existence of audio recordings from Khashoggi's death have been around since last year.

Turkish officials have publicly confirmed their existence and say they have shared them with international governments but is unclear how the newspaper apparently obtained them.

Almost a year on from his death, Khashoggi's body has not been recovered despite international pressure.

Earlier this year, a UN expert on extrajudicial killings called for an independent and impartial investigation into his death.

Special rapporteur Agnes Callamard described the journalist's death as a "deliberate, premeditated execution" and alleges "the state of Saudi Arabia is responsible" and should be investigated.

The Saudi government rejected her report and have consistently denied those responsible for the death were acting on official orders.

That's his job isn't it, golf and inane soundbites? It's not like anyone's ever accused him of actually doing anything.

I don't know much about him but he seems to spend most of his time mildly criticising Trump then doing a complete turn around when challenged.

And that's it.

@izzythepush,
That was the case before Trump became the Republican candidate, he now sings Trumps praises, and bad mouths anyone who is considered a rival.

A Saudi princess has received a 10-month suspended sentence over the beating and kidnapping of a plumber in her luxury Paris apartment.

Hassa bint Salman is the 43-year-old sister of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and daughter of King Salman.

She is accused of telling her bodyguard to beat up a plumber who allegedly took photos inside her home.

Ashraf Eid said the guard bound him and forced him to kiss the princess's feet.

On Thursday, a French court found the princess guilty of complicity to violence with a weapon and complicity to kidnap.

The princess - who was the subject of an international arrest warrant and was tried in absentia - was also ordered to pay a 10,000 euro (£8,900) fine. She has previously denied the charges against her.

Her bodyguard, Rani Saidi, received an eight-month suspended sentence and a 5,000 euro (£4,460) fine.

After the trial Princess Hassa's French lawyer, Emmanuel Moyne, said the plumber's allegations were "fanciful", and said they would launch an appeal.

Big money can get away with anything it wants too. Just go to the judicial system of any government in the world and get out your checkbook and buy lawyers and judges.

The UK's international trade secretary has apologised to a court for two breaches of a pledge not to licence exports to Saudi Arabia that could be used in the Yemen conflict.

Ministers promised to stop approving shipments in June after a challenge by campaigners at the Court of Appeal.

Liz Truss said the granting of licences for £435,000 of radio spares and a £200 air cooler for the Royal Saudi Land Forces had been "inadvertent".

An internal inquiry is taking place.

The ducking UK, pretending it cares about people and human rights.
usa/uk planned genocide against the Iraqi people.
=========

Lesley Stahl on U.S. sanctions against Iraq: We have heard that a half million children have died. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?

Secretary of State Madeleine Albright: I think this is a very hard choice, but the price–we think the price is worth it.
