Turkey to search Saudi consulate in Istanbul for missing journalist

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's policies were targeted in some of Khashoggi's work

Turkish police investigating the case of missing journalist had said in a statement Saturday that 15 Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and entered the consulate while Khashoggi was inside.

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".

Turkish officials told Reuters at the weekend they believed he had been killed inside the Saudi consulate.

Turkey's foreign ministry had also summoned the Saudi ambassador to urge "full cooperation" in the investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, the official Anadolu news agency said Monday. "We are aware of the latest reports and are working urgently to establish the facts, including with the government of Saudi Arabia".

The comments come in the wake of the disappearance of the journalist after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week.

"See when I hear arrest of a friend who did nothing that is worth to be arrested, make me feel I shouldn't go". We're also joined by Medea Benjamin, co-founder of CodePink, who knew Khashoggi and is the author of "Kingdom of the Unjust: Behind the U.S. -Saudi Connection".

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.

"I know many in Washington, and the world over share this concern for his wellbeing".

In a "personal message" reported by Al-Arabiya Prince Khaled bin Salman said he wanted to address the "malicious leaks and grim rumors flying around about Jamal's whereabouts and fate".

Saudi Arabia has denied the reports.

Turan Kislakci, a friend of Khashoggi, said the 59-year-old told him he had been invited to return to Riyadh by the crown prince to act as an adviser.

The Saudi writer spent previous year in the U.S.in self-imposed exile, after he fled the kingdom amid a crackdown on intellectuals and activists who criticized the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

According to Ms Cengiz, Mr Khashoggi had visited the consulate to receive an official document for his marriage.

Speaking from Ankara the same day, Erdogan said, "As president, I am pursuing".

Saudis are, perhaps, trying to ideal their excellence in furtherance of their plans and the world must expect more covert operations by Saudi Arabia in a not-so-distant future with Iran as its primary target. That team was sent "specifically for the murder", a person with knowledge of the Turkish investigation tells the Post.

Khashoggi has been a vociferous critic of Prince Mohammed's policies in both the Arab and Western press.

Calls for clarity from the worldwide community mounted on Monday, with Britain and France seeking explanations from Riyadh.

But since the emergence of Prince Mohammed, 33, as the center of power in the kingdom a year ago, Khashoggi has been openly critical of the monarchy.

United Nations spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said the "apparent enforced disappearance" of Khashoggi is a matter of "deep concern" to the human rights office in a press conference in Geneva on Tuesday.
