Turkey seeks arrest of Saudi crown prince allies over Jamal Khashoggi
Evolutional Blogs  - A Turkish court has issued arrest warrants for two suspects close to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, raising pressure on the kingdom's de facto leader after two US senators accused him of ordering the hit.

Saudi Arabia has sought to distance prince Mohammed from the murder and has received support from the administration of US President Donald Trump, which has downplayed possible links between the crown prince and what happened to Khashoggi.

But two key senators from Trump's own Republican party said on Tuesday that a briefing by the CIA's director had strengthened their conviction that prince Mohammed directed the murder.

Khashoggi, a Saudi contributor to the Washington Post, was killed shortly after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork for his upcoming marriage.
