WWE announced Thursday morning that Crown Jewel will take place as scheduled in Saudi Arabia next week, despite the controversy surrounding the Saudi government's involvement in the death of USA -based journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "The criminal investigation continues in Turkey".
That earlier assertion, in turn, backtracked from an initial statement that Saudi authorities knew nothing about what happened to the columnist for The Washington Post, who vanished after entering the consulate October 2.
CIA Director Gina Haspel has briefed US President Donald Trump about her visit to the Turkish capital of Ankara to find out the circumstances surrounding the death of Saudi journalist and US resident Jamal Khashoggi, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement.
On Thursday, Prince Mohammed chaired the first meeting of a committee his father King Salman has tasked with revamping the intelligence services in the light of the Khashoggi crisis.
Meanwhile, world leaders continue to urge the Saudi authorities to clarify the circumstances of the journalist's killing.
Turkish officials have discounted the ability of Saudi Arabia to conduct a credible investigation, given suspicion that the royal court was behind the operation.
King Salman, who has delegated the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to the crown prince, on Saturday ordered a restructuring of the general intelligence agency.

"All of these elements indicate that the disappearance and now killing of Jamal Khashoggi bear the hallmark of an extrajudicial execution". The crown prince reportedly requested the call.
The Saudi government is accused of ordering and carrying out the killing inside the country's embassy in Turkey.
On Sunday she told reporters at her party headquarters that "I agree with all those who say when it comes to our already limited arms exports [to Saudi Arabia] that they can not take place in the current situation".
The U.S. has always been Saudi Arabia's most important partner and Trump has made the kingdom the centerpiece of his efforts to isolate Iran.
French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Theresa May both spoke via telephone with King Salman, according to a statement issued by the Saudi Foreign Ministry late Thursday, hours after the European Parliament's resolution passed.
"What we know is sufficient to suggest very strongly that Mr Khashoggi was the victim of an extrajudicial execution", Agnes Callamard told Al Jazeera.
They chose the consulate, where the 59-year-old Washington Post contributor was killed on 2 October, to hold the first gathering of the newly-formed Jamal Khashoggi Friends Association.
It's unclear whether US intelligence agrees.
