Amid scepticism, Saudi official provides another version of Khashoggi death

RIYADH (Reuters) – As Saudi Arabia faced intensifying international skepticism over its story about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a senior government official laid out a new version of the death inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that in key respects contradicts previous explanations.

The latest account, provided by a Saudi official who requested anonymity, includes details on how the team of 15 Saudi nationals sent to confront Khashoggi on Oct. 2 had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted. A member of the team then dressed in Khashoggi’s clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate.

After denying any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, 59, for two weeks, Saudi Arabia on Saturday morning said he had died in a fistfight at the consulate. An …read more



Brawl breaks out at Lakers home opener against Rockets

After months of waiting, LeBron James finally made his debut with the Lakers in Los Angeles on Saturday night.

Rajon Rondo, Chris Paul, Brandon Ingram fight lateHarden, Paul dominate first half

Before the fight late in the game, Harden and Paul were dominating offensively — especially in the first half.

Harden dropped 23 points, going 6-of-13 from the field, in the first half. Paul was right behind him with 19 points and seven assists.

The Lakers simply couldn’t stop the duo — who were consistently reaching the free throw line, too. Harden went 8-of-10 from the charity stripe, and Paul went 7-of-9. By comparison, the Lakers went just 4-of-7 from the free throw line as a team.

That aggressiveness kept the Rockets out in front at the break, sending them to the locker room with a slight 66-62 lead.

Carolyn Hax: She expects me to keep this devastating secret from my husband

DEAR CAROLYN: My mother-in-law told me she questions her son’s (my husband’s) paternity. She claims her ex, his father, doesn’t know. She said she wanted me to know in case something happens to her and there’s a medical reason to know such information.

She didn’t want to tell him because she fears how it might affect her relationship with him.

Carolyn Hax: I’m treating this kid as if he were mine; is that OK?

I feel like I’m keeping a secret from my husband. I don’t think it’s my place to tell him though. Do I just carry the weight of this information and not say anything? Do I tell her she needs to disclose this to him or I will?

Carrying the Weight

DEAR CARRYING: Explain to her, calmly and kindly, that you understand her concern that telling him might affect her relationship with her son.

However — and unfortunately — your having this knowledge and keeping it from him has already started to affect your relationship with her son.

And you can’t have that. You can’t hold her secret — one you never asked for — in your marriage.

Once you spell out the problem for her, then, yes, you say she …read more
