Briefing Tuesday 16th October

Turkish sources have revealed that there is significant evidence to support the theory that missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The Turks revealed that there was significant evidence that the Saudis had attempted to tamper with evidence since the disappearances on October 2nd. Anonymous sources in Riyadh have speculated that the nation are willing to admit guilt for the murder, but instead blame it on rogue actors, a line that President Donald Trump has already floated to the media.

Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, has been found dead at the age of 65. His death is due to complications surrounding non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. In 1975 Allen, then 22, and Bill Gates, then 19, founded the company that would become Microsoft. Allen was supposedly the ideas man behind the company, whilst Gates provided business acumen. Although he left after just 8 years he retained a large enough stake to become a billionaire.

In his recent interview on CBS 60-minutes, Donald Trump indicated that he no longer believes climate change is a hoax, but instead believes scientists have a political agenda. He also claimed that he thinks it will reverse and that ‘people’ say that climate change is not man-made, despite providing no evidence.

And in other news,

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have started their tour of Australia today, by announcing that they are expecting a child. Last night the pair announced the news before kicking off their tour down under for the Invictus Games. The pair start their trip in Sydney before heading to rural New-South-Wales and Melbourne, before opening the games on Friday. They will then tour parts of the Pacific and New Zealand before returning to Sydney for the last day of the games.
