One day after Donald Trump, in an Associated Press interview, appeared to accept the claim of Saudi Arabia’s king that the country’s crown prince was not involved in the alleged horrific murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a new report by a London-based Middle East news outlet says that it has linked nearly half of the alleged Saudi hit squad believed to have killed the 60-year-old columnist directly to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, who now rules the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The new report also says that after apparently dismembering and murdering Khashoggi, the reported killers went to the home of Saudi Consul General Mohammed al-Otaibi, where they had dinner. As the Inquisitr reported, an earlier MEE report said that the Saudi assassins began dismembering Khashoggi while the journalist remained alive, as they listened to music through earphones.

Seven of the 15-member team that flew into Istanbul, Turkey, on the morning of October 2 — and allegedly mutilated, tortured and murdered Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate there later in the day — “belong to bin Salman’s personal security and protection detail,” according to the report by Middle East Eye editor David Hearst, who was a foreign correspondent with Britain’s Guardian newspaper for 29 years before joining MEE.

But Hearst’s Wednesday report contains yet another chilling detail in the emerging account of Khashoggi’s alleged horrific murder.
