Journalist disappearance: Turkey demands Saudis prove Khashoggi left consulate

Morocco’s Prince Moulay Hicham Condemns Murder of Jamal Khashoggi

Fears are growing over the fate of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi after Turkish officials said they believe he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate.

A Washington Post columnist and prominent newspaper editor in Saudi Arabia, Khashoggi mysteriously vanished last week.

"His friends had warned him, 'Don't go there, it is not safe, ' but he said they could not do anything to him in Turkey", said Aktay.

An adviser to Turkey's President Tayyip Erdogan, Yasin Aktay, said authorities had concrete information about Khashoggi's case, and he believed the journalist was killed in the consulate.

Turkish authorities have concluded that the Saudi journalist had been killed at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in istanbul.

However, the consulate has other entrances and exits as well, through which Saudi officials insist he left.

Repeating Trump's expression of "concern", Pompeo, who had just returned from a trip to Asia, called on the Saudi government "to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation".

"See when I hear arrest of a friend who did nothing that is worth to be arrested, make me feel I shouldn't go". But if Khashoggi is dead, the Saudi government certainly had a motive to kill him.

Erdogan told reporters on Sunday that authorities were examining camera footage and airport records as part of their investigation.

"We are hoping against hope that Mr Khashoggi is unharmed and will soon return to his writing desk", the Post said.

The mission will also help planners and emergency-management officials keep tabs on wildfires, floods and other disasters. There have been 30 successful SpaceX booster landings in all, including the at-sea and on-land touchdowns in Florida.

US State Department senior officials have spoken with Saudi Arabia through diplomatic channels about the matter, the top US diplomat added.

Where in the world is Jamal Khashoggi? And hopefully that will sort itself out.

Turkish journalist Muhammad Kanabkali expressed astonishment at the claim by some media persons that Khashoggi has died.

U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he and other lawmakers "agree if there was any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the Saudi government, it would be devastating to the U.S. -Saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be paid - economically and otherwise".

Saudi Arabia's consul in Istanbul opened his mission to Reuters on Saturday in an effort to show that Khashoggi was not on the premises.

Even President Donald Trump, who took his first overseas trip as United States president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said he had concerns.

Khashoggi had entered the consulate to obtain a document related to his upcoming wedding, according to his fiancee, Hatice Cengiz.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt has met ambassador Prince Mohammed bin Nawaf Al Saud to "seek answers", a day after Downing Street said the United Kingdom was "working urgently" to establish the facts behind the disappearance.

Fred Hiatt, the director of the Washington Post's editorial page, said if the reports were true "it is a monstrous and unfathomable act".

The official said that a security delegation consisting of Saudi investigators arrived in Istanbul on Saturday to participate in the investigations into the disappearance of Khashoggi.

"It's very, very sad for us that this happened in our country", the Turkish president said.
