Jamal Khashoggi's final moments caught on leaked tape recording

Tue, 20 Nov 2018 10:49 | The Telegraph

Jamal Khashoggi's final moments caught on leaked tape recordingA transcript of a tape recording of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s final minutes has been leaked, in which one of the alleged killers is heard calling him a “traitor”. The 11-minute audio, the contents of which are revealed for the first time, was released on Monday evening by Turkish news website Haberturk. "Let my hand go. Who do you think you are? Why are you doing this?" the report quotes Khashoggi as saying, as  several members of an alleged 15-man “hit squad” accost him as soon as he enters the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2. "You traitor! Your day of judgment has come!" a man alleged to be Maher Mutreb, the suspected oordinator of the mission who worked for some time in the kingdom’s embassy in London, is quoted as replying to the Washington Post columnist. Khashoggi and four members of the squad are heard quarrelling for at least seven minutes before the audio goes quiet. Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, named by Turkish officials as one of 15 Saudi suspects in the suspected killing of Jamal Khashoggi, is seen (circled). In a still image from surveillance camera footage Credit: AP The report adds that a later recording captures another “hitman”, Mustafa al-Madani, who was used as a body double to Khashoggi, saying: "It's really creepy that I am wearing the clothes of someone who was killed minutes ago." He is also reportedly heard saying that Khashoggi's shoes are too tight for his feet. In CCTV video footage taken from the back entrance of the consulate Madani is seen several hours after the murder wearing Khashoggi’s clothes but with his own trainers. The tapes have been leaked by the Turkish government to a number of local media outlets, however none have published the reportedly gruesome audio. Devlet Bahceli, a politician in Turkey’s main nationalist party, warned on Tuesday that “the circle is tightening” around Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. CNN pictures body double Saudi had apparently employed.

"It was very violent, very vicious and terrible," he said. Over the weekend, the US president called reports that Prince Mohammed ordered the killing "premature." He said that it was "possible" and that it was also possible that people will never know the truth. Mr Trump faces increasing pressure to take tougher measures against Riyadh, amid a growing consensus that the crown prince, who has unchallenged power in the ultraconservative kingdom, must have known about the operation. France's top diplomat said Monday that his country was mulling sanctions against Saudi Arabia. Germany on Monday announced that it has banned 18 Saudi nationals from entering Europe's border-free Schengen zone because of their suspected connections to the killing. German officials, who earlier banned new weapons exports to Riyadh, also said they are halting previously approved arms exports. Late last week, a bipartisan group of US senators introduced legislation that calls for suspending weapons sales to Saudi Arabia; sanctions on people who block humanitarian access in Yemen or support the Houthi rebels; and mandatory sanctions on those responsible for Khashoggi's death. "There must be a transparent, credible investigation into Khashoggi's murder," New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in introducing the bill with two Democratic and three Republican colleagues.

Today's Horoscope

Aries Horoscope for Tuesday, November 20, 2018

You wake up satisfied and ready for something different this time. The Stars strongly suggest that you enjoy the fruits of your labor. Maybe this means sitting back and appreciating your work. Maybe it means a major shopping trip. You`ve been denying yourself things that would make your life easier and more pleasant. As long as you`re going all out, make it work for others, too. Invest in products and services that put the money and goodwill back into your local economy. This is the community that feeds your spirit, and you`ll be completing the circle.
It`s all about money -- specifically, your money. But don`t panic, because the news is good. Financial luck is with you. Maybe you`ll land a juicy corporate account or you`ll find money on the sidewalk. The Universe is giving you a gift, not dangling bait in front of you. Sometimes a valuable coupon is an acceptable substitute for actual cash. Let it be known that you have a million-dollar smile. All you have to do is flash this around, and everybody wins. It`s good that you can include so many so easily. Love is in the air and your dancing feet hardly touch the ground.

You thought you were paying attention. Maybe you were, but you can`t be everywhere at once. Foregone conclusions are as fleeting as the wind. Recent events keep unfolding only to wrap themselves up in a surprising outcome. What once seemed like an uncomfortable possibility is now the current reality. Get used to it, and get ready to discuss it. The more you think about this, the more possibilities you see. If nothing else, you`re adaptable and cheerful. You have the strength and generosity to stand trouble on its head, turning a frown into a smile. And yes, you just did it again.
Whether you were invited or just crashed the door, you`re instantly the life of the party. Throw one of your own, and that way you`ll have some control over who you get to see. But even though you have your favorites, nobody annoys you now. Things bounce merrily off your shell without any noticeable impact on your tender insides. If you plan to make a suggestion or submit a proposal, this is your moment. The worst answer they could give would be no ... but all you have to do is bring your charm into play, and they`re likely to just say yes.

Usually it`s hard to believe you could ever have too much fun. This time, though, you`re beginning to wonder. Things start off on the wrong foot, and the awkwardness persists. If you can`t find an immediate cure, maybe you can tune it out for a while. Force yourself to be a responsible citizen and get back to work. Your pile will just get deeper the longer you ignore it. As you wade through, be sure to start making amends to the people you blew off last week. Moods come and go, but consequences stay a lot longer.
Efficiency has its place, but you owe yourself a detour along the scenic route. If you experience something different, you`ll be that much richer for it. The Universe is still expanding, as far as you`re concerned. Everybody is worth meeting. Each new idea is worth considering. You have your dreams and opinions, but even these things are subject to change. When you pass a library or get back to your computer and books, fill in the background of the places you just visited. The deeper you get, the more fascinating the subject becomes.

Getting along with others shouldn`t be that hard. If you have to work with them, the reasons for cooperation should be obvious. If you love them, it`s an absolute pleasure to make their lives easier. Remember this when plans go awry or expectations fall short. A major delivery or cultural event is unlikely to happen, despite all your efforts toward making it come to pass. This can be especially hard if, after all the buildup, it`s nothing like what you thought it would be. Remain calm in the face of disorganization. Some of the best innovations happen when chaos throws its diverse elements together.
You`re not in control of this situation. Don`t even pretend to be in the know about what you think is happening. Larger forces are already at work, busily rearranging the world in ways that you can`t begin to understand. However, learning about the people involved in this scenario is one task that you can certainly handle. Focus on their grace and beauty, even as you watch them play out their roles. Some are clearly destined to be your friends, whether you end up working or playing together. Maybe it`s time to let go of older relationships that have already served their purposes.

Moral issues loom large. What people do and why they do it seem to be at the center of everything that happens. You can`t really blame natural causes unless you factor human nature into that category. But diplomacy comes before philosophy. Someone may lose his or her temper and use words as weapons. Before anybody can take this process to the next level, you all have to start being kind to each other and healing wounds. Analysis identifies the problem and discussion might even solve it. For action-oriented types, this method could take a little adjustment.
Your feelings are valid. This shouldn`t come as a surprise, although you might have been suppressing them more than usual lately. Open the reservoir and let it all come rushing out. If you have to laugh, weep, hug someone or shout at the sky, these are all parts of you. It`s been way too long since you last surrendered to your inner forces and let them shake you up like this. Anyone who experiences you now has to admit that you`re beautiful. Admit this to yourself, too, just in case you were in doubt about it.

You wish you could find a better fit than what you have now. It`s easy to feel bored when circumstances prevent you from being fully engaged. Cast this whole thing in an educational light and see whether it makes any more sense. Once you view it as a soluble problem, you wonder if there`s a less time-intensive way to reach the same solution. The information is there, no matter how you break it down. Funds paid out needlessly might be slow in coming back to you. If you`re making good on a debt, however, you have every reason to be proud about it.
There`s poetry in everything you do. As anyone who`s ever experienced this art form or state of mind is well aware, there`s more to it than just written or spoken words. You move through the world with soft elegance, touching hands and hearts. People fall in love as you pass, even if it`s just for a brief moment of their lives. Get ready for some highly unusual interactions, although at the time they`ll seem completely appropriate. It`s only later, when you think back on your day, that you`ll fully understand the amazing thing you accomplished.
