Donald Trump vows "harsh punishment" when Saudi Arabia journalist Jamal Khashoggi murders

ONAfter no more responsibility for eleven days, but little evidence of their innocence, the Saudi government is now trying to take a more proactive course to deal with the fallout while protecting Crown Prince Mohammed's own reputation.

The Crown Prince has invited the Saudi Ambassador in Washington, his younger brother Prince Khalid bin Salman, a former fighter pilot, to consultations to appease both the White House and Congress.

He also sent a team of Saudi officials to Ankara to meet with the Turkish government as part of a newly formed "joint working group" to see what happened to Mr. Khashoggi.

The Saudi government refers to the joint group as proof that it takes the situation seriously, and hopes that the appearance of an investigation process will gain some time in the short term.

In a statement on Saturday, Saudi Minister of the Interior Prince Abdulaziz Bin Saud praised "the cooperation with the brothers in Turkey through the Joint Commission of Inquiry and other official channels".
