  CIA concludes Saudi Crown Prince ordered murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi   Fri, 16 Nov 2018 19:42:17 -0500

CIA concludes Saudi Crown Prince ordered murder of journalist Jamal KhashoggiThe CIA has concluded Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to US media. Khashoggi, who was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month, was reportedly given assurances that it was safe for him to attend the consulate in a phone call with the Saudi ambassador to the US, Khalid bin Salman, who is the brother of the Crown Prince. The Washington Post reported on Friday night that the US intelligence agency intercepted a call from the Crown Prince to his brother Khalid in which he instructed him to telephone Khashoggi. It is not clear if Khalid bin Salman knew that Khashoggi would be killed, but it is the clearest evidence yet that the order to murder the journalist came from the very highest levels of the Saudi government.  Saudi Arabia has repeatedly denied that the Crown Prince had any involvement in the death of Khashoggi, who had been a fierce critic of Mohammed bin Salman.  Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Credit:  REUTERS The revelation will put further pressure on President Donald Trump to publicly rebuke Saudi Arabia's leaders over the diplomatic crisis. The White House has so far been reluctant to damage their relationship with a key ally and trading partner in the Middle East, with Mr Trump repeating Saudi claims that the murder was the result of rogue agents. The Crown Prince, who is expected to become the next Saudi king, had been seen as a moderniser by Western allies. However international outcry over the murder of Mr Khashoggi has brought his involvement in the affair under heavy scrutiny.  Saudi Arabia has offered shifting explanations or the incident, most recently claiming that rogue operatives injected Khashoggi with a lethal drug overdose. The kingdom has announced charges against 11 people it says were involved and vowed to seek the death penalty against five. Some of the hit team have been identified as key aides to the Crown Prince and other senior Saudi officials. The CIA reportedly obtained the intelligence that Khashoggi's life may have been in danger before his murder but it was not discovered until after his disappearance, intelligence sources told the Washington Post.  Khashoggi was not considered "a person of interest" before his disappearance, and was regarded as protected from American intelligence gathering in part because of his status as a US resident, according to the sources. It was only after his death that US intelligence agencies began searching their archives and uncovered material suggesting the Saudi royal family had been attempting to lure the dissident back to the country. Khalid bin Salman issued a vehement public denial of the reports, insisting that his last communication with the journalist was by text message in 2017.  As we told the Washington Post the last contact I had with Mr. Khashoggi was via text on Oct 26 2017. I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. I ask the US government to release any information regarding this claim.— Khalid bin Salman خالد بن سلمان (@kbsalsaud) November 16, 2018 "I never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to Turkey for any reason. "I ask the US government to release any information regarding this claim," he added.

  Trump administration says no final conclusion on Khashoggi murder   Sat, 17 Nov 2018 15:55:42 -0500

Trump administration says no final conclusion on Khashoggi murder"Recent reports indicating that the U.S. government has made a final conclusion are inaccurate," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said in a statement. "There remain numerous unanswered questions with respect to the murder of Mr. Khashoggi." Nauert said the State Department will continue to seek facts and work with other countries to hold those involved in the journalist's killing accountable "while maintaining the important strategic relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia." Trump, while flying to California on Saturday, discussed the CIA assessment by phone with the agency's director, Gina Haspel, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters. The CIA had briefed other parts of the U.S. government, including Congress, on its assessment, sources told Reuters on Friday, a development that complicates Trump's efforts to preserve ties with the key U.S. ally.



  California wildfires: Search teams step up efforts to find remains before rain arrives   Sun, 18 Nov 2018 14:43:00 -0500

While the rain will help with the Camp Fire, it could also turn parts of the blaze zone - where at least 76 bodies have been discovered so far - into a mass of mud that could hinder efforts to find remains. Meteorologists have “very high confidence” that Butte County will get 10-13cm of rain from Tuesday night through to the weekend.

  Donald Trump brags about answering Mueller probe questions   Fri, 16 Nov 2018 23:17:32 -0500

Donald Trump brags about answering Mueller probe questionsPresident Donald Trump said on Friday he had "very easily" answered written questions from Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the Russia probe, though he speculated that the questions had been "tricked up" to try to catch him in a lie. He said he hadn't submitted his answers to investigators yet. "You have to always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions," he told reporters in his latest swipe at the investigation into 2016 election interference and possible ties between Moscow and the president's campaign. The president did not say when he would turn over the answers to Mr Mueller, but his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, indicated it could happen next week. The special counsel has signalled a willingness to accept written answers on matters related to collusion with Russia. But Mr Giuliani has said repeatedly the president would not answer Mr Mueller's questions on possible obstruction of justice. During months of back-and-forth negotiations with the special counsel's office, Mr Trump's lawyers have repeatedly counseled the president against sitting down for an in-person interview. Profile | Robert Mueller Mr Trump's written response, though not yet delivered, signals a new phase in the Mueller probe, the year-and-a-half-long investigation that has produced guilty pleas and convictions from several senior Trump aides even as the special counsel and the White House engaged in lengthy negotiations about how - or if - the president would testify. Though he spent hours with his attorneys, Mr Trump insisted: "My lawyers don't write answers, I write answers." The president's remarks were fresh evidence of his return to the ominous rhythms of the Russia probe after spending heady weeks enjoying adulation-soaked campaign rallies before the midterm elections. Despite Trump's insistence Friday that he's "very happy" with how things are going, his frustrations with the ongoing probe have been evident everywhere from his overheated Twitter feed this week to his private grousing that the special counsel may target his family. Adding to his grim outlook has been the barrage of criticism he's getting over his choice for acting attorney general and late-arriving election results that have largely been tipping toward House Democrats. "The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess," Trump tweeted Thursday as part of a series of morning posts. The investigators don't care "how many lives they can ruin," he wrote. A day later, he tried to put a rosier shine on the situation, telling reporters: "I'm sure it will be just fine."

Raab, who resigned on Thursday saying he could not support the deal, said he would back May if there was a confidence vote and that talk of a leadership challenge was distracting when the government should be focused on delivering Brexit. "I still think a deal could be done but it is very late in the day now and we need to change course," Raab told the BBC, adding that changes should be made before the deal is brought to parliament as lawmakers would not support it as it stands.

  Rohingya refugees say they would 'rather die' than be sent back to Burma, as repatriation plans are 'stalled until 2019'   Sun, 18 Nov 2018 12:19:26 -0500

Rohingya refugees say they would 'rather die' than be sent back to Burma, as repatriation plans are 'stalled until 2019'Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh said on Sunday that they would “rather die” than go back to Burma under current conditions, as it was revealed plans to repatriate them have been stalled until next year. “We will not return without being given our rights as citizens,” said Mohamad Saddiq Hossain, a local community leader in Kutupalong extension camp, “we would rather die here than be taken back there.”  Mr Hossain’s feelings were shared by many of the camp's Rohingya residents, who have spent the past week fearing they could be forced back to the country that more than 720,000 were forced to flee in 2017 after a sweeping army crackdown in Rakhine state. Last Tuesday Bangladesh's government was due to send the first batch of 2,200 refugees back to Burma from the south of Bangladesh, but the process was stalled amid protests.  Many of those on the list approved by the Burma government fled from their shelters and hid in other camps or in the forest. None of them agreed to return if their demands for justice, citizenship and the ability to go back to their original villages and lands were not met. Abul Kalam, Bangladesh's refugee relief and repatriation commissioner, told Reuters on Sunday that "a new course of action" needed to be adopted on repatriation that took into account refugees' demands. Hundreds of Rohingya refugees shout slogans as they protest against their repatriation at the Unchiprang camp Credit:  MOHAMMAD PONIR HOSSAIN/ REUTERS  "I don't think anyone's agreeing to go back without these," he said.  Rahin Ullah, a Rohingya refugee believed to be about 50 years old (he is unsure of his exact age) who fled Myanmar last August for the third time, said he wanted to go home but would not do so until there was an end to discrimination against his people. "We are here just to save our lives for the sake of our children,” he said. “[Burma] is my homeland, my father was born there, my grandfather was born there and, as far as I know, his father before him.”  Highlighting the still volatile conditions in Burma, four Rohingya were shot in a raid by immigration authorities on an internal displacement camp outside the city of Sittwee on Sunday. The 20 police officers who entered the camp were looking for men accused of people smuggling after a boat was stopped off the coast on Saturday with 106 Rohingya on board, believed to be on their way to Malaysia. With Bangladesh set to go to the polls on Dec. 30, any decision either to repatriate people, or relocate refugees from the crowded camps to Bangladesh's Bhasan Char island will not proceed until 2019, Mr Kalam said.  Bangladesh has vowed not to force anyone to return. But the Rohingya’s presence has become particularly contentious ahead of the elections. Many Bangladeshis feel their small, overpopulated country should not be bearing the burden of an extra million people in one of its poorest regions. Rohingya like Mr Hossain have little choice. “Here in Bangladesh we have nothing,” he says, “but it is better than returning.”

Yemen rebels mobilise to fight ahead of UN envoy visitYemeni rebels have said they are ready to mobilise more fighters to the frontline despite a lull in battleground Hodeida, as the UN envoy prepares to visit the country to boost peace efforts. Dozens of Huthi rebels put on a show of strength on the outskirts of the capital Sanaa on Saturday, apparently getting ready to head towards Hodeida, a Red Sea city home to a vital port. Residents told AFP by telephone on Sunday that relative calm had held in Hodeida city since pro-government forces -- backed by a Saudi-led military coalition -- announced a pause in their offensive last week amid international calls for a ceasefire and UN-led peace efforts.
