Saudis held 3 court sessions on 'heinous' Khashoggi killing

Addressing the United Nations Human Rights Council, Dr.al-Aiban said "we are horrified at Khashoggi killing" and that it was a "heinous crime" and an "unfortunate accident". It said earlier on Thursday that Saudi authorities should disclose the names of defendants and the charges they face if it want to avoid questions over the "sincerity of judicial proceedings in the kingdom".

"We would like to assume that Mr al-Aiban's remarks reflected his personal views rather than the official position of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - our friend and kin".

After countries around the world, including every European Union member nation, encouraged Saudi Arabia to cooperate with an worldwide investigation into the Washington Post journalist's death, Bandar bin Mohammed al-Aiban responded Thursday, saying his country already took care of everything.

The public prosecutor is seeking the death penalty for five of them.

While the government has accepted recommendations in its current review to provide a transparent investigation into the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Arabia rejected recommendations calling for participation of worldwide experts in the investigation.

For those playing games instead of making them, Steam Link is now officially usable outside of home networks, albeit in open beta. It should be added that iOS users are now out of luck, as Apple keep rejecting Valve's attempts to get the app on the App Store.

Eleven suspects have been indicted in Saudi Arabia for Khashoggi's murder and Riyadh has denied the crown prince ordered the killing. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Assiri said Aiban's refusal to allow an global independent investigation suggests officials at the highest levels "are hiding something".

The killing has severely strained ties between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, although Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has good ties with the Saudi monarch, King Salman.

Aiban said that there had so far been three hearings, and that the accused and their lawyers had been present.

"They are entitled to legal council, and they have also been informed of their rights to resort to the services of council during the investigation phase and during the trial", he said.

On Thursday, critics of the government's handling of the investigation, including Yahya Assiri, a Saudi human rights activist, noted the omission of any mention of the kingdom's powerful crown prince.
