Jamal Khashoggi: Saudis paid Khashoggi's children, claims report

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi sits at a news conference in 2014

In the same month, Khashoggi's two daughters wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post in which they praised their father's legacy but did not criticize the Saudi government or its alleged involvement in Khashoggi's death.

The children are being given monthly payments of at least $10,000.

But even under those circumstances, the Khashoggi family abstained from cacophonous claims against Saudi Arabia and its rulers.

"Such support is part of our custom and culture", the official told the Post. "It is not attached to anything else".

Jamal Khashoggi Murder Fallout: Rift between Saudi King Salman and His Heir Crown Prince MBS.

The houses are located within a compound in Jeddah, with the largest property being given to eldest son Salah, who is the only child living permanently in Saudi.

Smith remarked upon how insane it is that 9/11 could be considered a "blip" in the U.S. -Saudi relationship, saying, "And that a man whom our intelligence agency says was cut to bits on the order of the man that rules the kingdom from day to day, who has children and is a resident of the United States, that that is but a blip".

The family declined to comment on the payments.

Salah Khashoggi, the journalist's son, was summoned to the royal palace previous year and the government released photographs of him meeting with both King Salman and the Crown Prince.

Khashoggi's son Abdullah and daughter Noha did not respond to requests for comment.

The Saudi government said the royals had delivered their personal condolences to Khashoggi's grieving son and brother. William Taylor, a Washington lawyer who has represented the family, also refused to discuss any compensation the family has received.

Thus far, President Donald Trump has done nothing to address the situation.

Khashoggi, a Virginia resident and Washington Post columnist, had four adult children, at least two of whom are US citizens.

A recording taking from Turkish microphones planted inside the consulate is said to reveal a 15-man hit squad tried to take Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi officials have yet to explain what happened to Khashoggi's body.

The newspaper cited current and former Saudi officials as well as members of Khashoggi's family. Its public prosecutor has charged 11 people over his murder.

Looking ahead, the Saudi leadership would like nothing more than to bury the Khashoggi saga and move forward in working closely with the U.S. when it comes to the kingdom's economic transformation as well as Riyadh's and Washington's shared objectives in the region, particularly with respect to countering Iranian influence. His remains have never been recovered.

Saudi Arabia is attempting through the move to come to a long-term understanding and discourage the Khashoggi children from speaking out for their father's killing at the hands of Saudi agents, Saudi officials told the Washington Post. The arrangement may require the siblings to publicly forgive or absolve the killer in order to receive the massive payout.

The official said it was an effort by the royal family "to make a wrong right".
