Donald Trump, the US president, has so far declined to publicly support the conclusion of the CIA that Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, ordered the killing but says he expects a full report on Monday or Tuesday.

At the weekend, Hulusi Akar, the Turkish defence minister, reportedly said the journalist’s killers may have taken his body parts out of Turkey. “One probability is that they left the country three to four hours after committing the murder. They may have taken out Kha...

Facebook announced Thursday it is creating an independent body to make potentially precedent-setting calls on what content should be yanked from the social network. The announcement came as Facebook reported it has ramped up its ability to quickly detect "hate speech" and other posts violating community rules, with the leading social network under pressure from regulators in various countries and activists to root out abusive and inappropriate content. "I have come to believe that we shouldn't be making so many decisions about free expression and safety on our own," Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a media briefing.

Technology firms led a plunge in Asian markets Tuesday, tracking a deep sell-off in New York where Apple tumbled on worries about demand for its iPhones, while energy firms were also in free-fall with oil prices. The latest bloodbath comes after a key parts supplier said a client -- widely thought to be Apple -- had slashed orders, stoking speculation that the US titan's popular handset was not selling as well as in the past. Apple was already under pressure after posting disappointing earnings earlier this month and announcing it would no longer report iPhone sale numbers.

Lee Westwood should be used to winning European Tour events after picking up 23 trophies since turning professional in 1993. Yet the Englishman’s 24th reduced him to tears. Westwood came from three-shots behind Sergio Garcia to win the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa. The 45-year-old returned an 8-under 64 to post a 15-under 273 total and defeat Garcia by three shots. Home favorite Louis Oosthuizen finished alone in third, four shots behind at 11 under.

Southampton's winless run in the English Premier League extended to eight games after conceding a late goal to draw with Watford 1-1 at home on Saturday. Jose Holebas equalized with a deflected strike nine minutes from time, leaving Southampton aggrieved having had a goal from Charlie Austin incorrectly ruled out for offside at 1-0. Southampton's under-pressure manager, Mark Hughes, looked set for a first Premier League win in more than two months thanks to Manolo Gabbiadini's goal in the 20th minute, which came after Danny Ings dispossessed the dawdling Roberto Pereyra. The draw left Southampton one place above the bottom three and with only one win from its last 17 top-flight fixtures in front
