Saudi Arabia to let Turkey search consulate over missing journalist

To reporters, to anybody. He said nobody knows exactly what happened and expressed hope that Khashoggi is not dead. "Having said that, it may well be that we are already in the most supportive phase coming from this change and the effect will soon begin to ease". It´s a very serious situation for us and for this White House. But after three hours I was overcome with fear and concern.

"We can not let this happen, to reporters, to anybody", Trump said, after confirming "we want to bring [Khashoggi's fiancee Hatice Cengiz] to the White House".

Jamal Khashoggi, 59, has not been heard from his fiance nor coworkers after his disappearance on October 2.

The fiancee of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has urged US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to "help shed light" on his disappearance. She said the writer first visited the consulate on September 28 "despite being somewhat concerned that he could be in danger". In other words, he did not mind walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul because he did not believe that something bad could happen on Turkish soil.

Nauert said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and other US diplomats have been engaged on the issue and that Trump himself - he said Tuesday he "knows nothing" about what happened to Khashoggi - intends to speak to the Saudis.

If either government seems to be in control of the investigation, Kaye said "it is not going to be seen as credible by significant portions of the global community".

Photos of the fifteen men, checking in to hotels in Turkey's largest city Istanbul surfaced early Wednesday morning, on local Turkish media, more than a week after Jamal Khashoggi went missing inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey's biggest city.

The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, described to the Times a quick and complex operation in which Khashoggi was killed within two hours of his arrival at the consulate by a team of Saudi agents who dismembered his body with a bone saw they brought for the goal.

Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday on conservative commentator Hugh Hewitt's show that the United States would send Federal Bureau of Investigation agents to the consulate to investigate if the Saudis requested it.

'We have to find out who did it, ' Trump said.

"The free world deserves answers", Mr. Pence said.

If forecasts prove accurate, the hurricane would largely miss major oil-producing assets in the Gulf, analysts said, but a change of track could widen the impact.

Khashoggi, who lived in the U.S.in exile and whose children are USA citizens, disappeared during a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istambul Oct. 2.

It's believed that several of the men belong to Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's elite close protection unit, a source told Middle East Eye.

A pro-government Turkish newspaper published an account of a team of Saudis who flew to Istambul around the time of the disappearance. The Post noted that the footage has been edited, and that timestamps are of questionable accuracy. Sens. Chris Coons, D-Del., and Thom Tillis, R-N.C., said the disappearance of the journalist sends a "chilling message" and called for the Saudis to "immediately investigate and verify Jamal's location".
