Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday that the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a “planned” and “brutal” murder and called on Saudi Arabia to extradite 18 suspects to Turkey to face justice for the crime.
Erdogan’s highly anticipated comments, during a speech to his ruling party in Ankara, the Turkish capital, contradicted Saudi accounts that Khashoggi was killed when an argument inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul escalated into a fistfight.
The Turkish leader did not directly accuse the Saudi leadership of involvement in the killing but strongly indicated that the Saudi investigation, which has resulted in the arrests of 18 people so far, had not reached high enough into the kingdom’s ruling circles.

The mastermind of fake accounts and money-laundering, also the chief finance officer of the Omni Group, Aslam Masood have been arrested by Interpol in Jeddah, FIA sources have confirmed.

The sources at Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) said red warrants of Aslam Masood were issued in case related fake accounts and money-laundering a few days back and Pakistan had contacted the Interpol for the arrest of the accused.

FIA sources privy to the development said, “Aslam Masood was arrested by FIA upon his arrival at Jeddah airport from London last night.”
