    Apparently, they brought a bone saw which is a standard and portable piece of morgue equipment. He may have been given a final ultimatum in there with the instruments of torture displayed and refused to play ball. It would have been a lot less trouble diplomatically to get him home and deal with him in KSA. And perhaps I’m crediting MBS and Co. with too much prudence.

    Richard Branson is showing some much needed leadership.

    Astonishing this hasn't taken off in diplomatic terms - it's almost unbelievable.

    IMF chief attending Saudi conference, watching for news of journalist | Reuters

    This hypocricy if of Irish proportions. Ms Lagarde is going to sidle up to Saudi diplomats and pretend to be reading her notes while whistling an old money laundering tune. The fact that her plan is published in the 'news' sources of the world may put the Saudis on their guard and they are likely to gather their skirts about them and move off.

    I feel physically sick reading this.

    It took seven minutes for Jamal Khashoggi to die, a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of the Saudi journalist's last moments told Middle East Eye.

    Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and onto the table of his study next door, the Turkish source said.

    Horrendous screams were then heard by a witness downstairs, the source said.

    "The consul himself was taken out of the room. There was no attempt to interrogate him. They had come to kill him,” the source told MEE.

    The screaming stopped when Khashoggi - who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate on 2 October - was injected with an as yet unknown substance.

    Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, who has been identified as the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department, was one of the 15-member squad who arrived in Ankara earlier that day on a private jet.

    Tubaigy began to cut Khashoggi’s body up on a table in the study while he was still alive, the Turkish source said.

    The killing took seven minutes, the source said.

    As he started to dismember the body, Tubaigy put on earphones and listened to music. He advised other members of the squad to do the same.

    “When I do this job, I listen to music. You should do [that] too,” Tubaigy was recorded as saying, the source told MEE.
    Tapes Show Saudi Journalist Jamal Khashoggi 'Decapitated': Turkish Media
    ...Saudi Arabia's consul to Istanbul, Mohammed al-Otaibi, can be heard on one tape saying during Khashoggi's torture: "Do this outside. You are going to get me in trouble."

    The daily reported that in another tape, an unknown individual tells Otaibi: "If you want to live when you come to Saudi Arabia, be quiet!"

    Let's hope so.

    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.
