Turkey Will Investigate Saudi Consulate After Man Disappears

Turkey Will Investigate Saudi Consulate After Man Disappears

Turkish officials believe Khashoggi was killed within two hours of entering the building.

RSF suggests such a probe could be carried out by the U.N. special rapporteur on Freedom of Expression and the U.N. special rapporteur on Extrajudicial, Summary or Arbitrary Executions, in conjunction with the U.N. working group. He had been living in the United States since previous year, in self-imposed exile, in part due to the rise of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has shown little tolerance for criticism. He had been living in the U.S.in self-imposed exile.

On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he's personally "chasing" the investigation into the disappearance of his friend, and that Turkish officials are investigating "everything".

The image bears a date and time stamp saying it was taken on 2 October, when the Post's columnist entered the consulate to obtain divorce papers.

Saudi Arabia said he left the consulate on his own, but it has provided no evidence - such as video footage that would show him leaving.

Khashoggi was previously a prominent newspaper editor in Saudi Arabia and an adviser to a former head of intelligence.

Ankara and Riyadh have worked over recent years to maintain cordial relations despite disputes on key issues, such as the ousting of the Islamist Egyptian government and the blockade on Turkey's key regional ally Qatar.

Despite the possible Saudi involvement in the disappearance and possible murder of Khashoggi, which has been widely condemned internationally, USA relations with Saudi Arabia are "excellent", Trump said. He walked into the consulate of Saudi Arabia, his native country, without doubting he would be safe there.

Khashoggi, 59, went missing while on a visit to the consulate in Istanbul for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée.

OSMAN ORSAL/REUTERS/NewscomNearly a week after the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappeared, suspicions are rising that the regime in Riyadh has silenced him. While it has always been apparent that common values are not shared by all American allies, can we still remain partners when journalists go missing, presumed murdered? "As we speak today, there are Saudi intellectuals and journalists jailed".

I did not know about this until yesterday. "We're obviously very thin and need some guys to step up and develop", Saban said . Backup tight end Cheyenne O'Grady caught seven of those passes for 48 yards and went into the end zone twice.

He said they were made in NY, but gave no details about who was involved.

A Saudi-led coalition has been at war with Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi rebels since March 2015.

Mr. Trump said of the Saudi journalist's suspected murder, "We're taking it very seriously".

There are fears that Jamal Khashoggi, who's contributed columns to The Washington Post, has been murdered.

She said she waited outside for him to come out and then realized something was wrong around 4 p.m. because the consulate closed at 3:30 p.m.

The president did not provide details on a USA investigation.

He was asked about a Post report that US intelligence intercepts outlined a Saudi plan to detain Khashoggi. "I have to find out what happened, and we're probably getting closer than you might think". Turkey has said it will search the consulate for signs of what happened to Khashoggi, but has not said when it will do so.

The Saudi consulate has said CCTV cameras were not working that day and has dismissed the murder claims as "baseless".

"Just spoke to Senators Bob Corker and Ben Cardin about our shared concerns regarding the whereabouts and treatment of Mr Jamal Khashoggi", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted Monday. Speaking with "Fox News @ Night" Wednesday night, Trump warned such a move "would be hurting us".
