those missing in california's wildfires we get the latest from one of the devastated communities. i'm rebecca riches welcome to the program the cia believes saudi arabia's powerful crown prince muhammad bin salman ordered the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi that's according to a report in the washington post citing sources familiar with the matter the u.s. has vowed accountability for those found responsible but u.s. president donald trump says he has not yet been briefed on the cia findings. he has consistently denied having any involvement but now mohammed bin salomon is firmly in the spotlight of blame the washington post says the cia has concluded saudi arabia's de facto ruler is directly tied to the killing. and is briefing the u.s. government about his involvement calling him volatile and arrogant. a critic of the
3:02 pm
saudi government and columnist for the washington post was killed at the saudi consulate in istanbul on october the second when he went there to pick up documents he needed for his marriage to a turkish woman. the crown prince of so far evaded direct accusations and vowed to bring the killers to justice. first of all the crime was really painful to all saudis believe it is painful to every human in the world it is a humorous crime that cannot be justified. but these latest developments put his position in doubt the washington post says that the cia reached its conclusions after examining sources of intelligence including a phone call that the prince's brother had lead been selman made to take a shot she on mohammed command in the phone call her lead to the saudi ambassador to the u.s. is said to have encouraged because shock she to go to the consulate with assurances
3:03 pm
he would be safe to do so the leaders vehemently denied any such claims on twitter he said i never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to turkey for any reason because shock she's visit to the consulate and in his death but the washington post says it isn't clear whether knew he would be killed the developments are likely to complicate president trump's efforts to preserve ties with his key ally has so far resisted pinning the blame for the killing on mohammed bin solomon he might not be able to hold to that if the cia's position is that the crown prince himself ordered a murder. well from joined by instead correspondent. you're anchor has said all along that the saudi government must be responsible is there a sense of vindication there in turkey now. well let's remember the cia has so far not officially confirmed these media reports that might be one of
3:04 pm
the reasons why we haven't heard of any official reactions here in turkey yet president out on may comment on the matter later but i think it's safe to assume that for this is the good news they have been trying to internationalize the whole investigation getting other countries on board a turkish president out on himself said that this is a murder premeditated murder was ordered at quote the highest level of the highest levels of the saudi government but he fell short of directly blaming crown prince mohammed bin sunland now the cia findings as cited by the washington post all the most direct u.s. assessment to date linking the crown prince with the midst of the shock g.'s a murder that's directly contradicting the saudi narrative the saudis still maintain that the crown prince had absolutely nothing to do with it now the new findings the report seem to play into the turkish government's hands yesterday there was a phone call between president adeline and u.s.
3:05 pm
president trump and according to this they agreed to make sure that they get to the bottom of this murderous so how they come to some kind of understanding it's going to be really interesting how this will play out how the u.s. president trumbo will react because as you mentioned so far he did not directly blame the crown prince in order to protect relations with saudi arabia a close u.s. ally right and what's the latest on the investigation there into what's happened to crucial case body. well many here have given up hope that the body or remains of the body will ever be found yesterday there was a funeral prayer here at a mosque in istanbul in absentia to honor the slain saudi rider turkish authorities investigators say he was killed dismembered and they're also looking into the possibility that his body was disposed in acid so not much hope left that
3:06 pm
they will ever find the body and just briefly the turkish government doesn't normally provoke promote press freedom why as i'm probing so you came to uncover the truth in this case. well you're right according to n.g.o.s turkey has a terrible record when it comes to press freedom freedom of opinion in general but treating this case as a completely different matter to them it's also a violation of territorial integrity a team of saudi agents came to murder a journalist a saudi national inside the saudi consulate here in turkey so that's why they're really pressing and pushing for this investigation to go forward and it's also about regional power dynamics let's remember turkey and saudi arabia have a number of problems cut told located being one of them so this is also about leadership in the region. certainly sounds like a lot more to be uncovered in this case leon in istanbul thanks very much
