Turkey steps up pressure on Saudi Arabia over missing journalist

Canada concerned over reports Saudi journalist killed - The Jakarta Post

Turkish officials privately believe he was killed at the consulate, an allegation denied by Saudi Arabia.The official said it is unclear if the original plan was to murder Khashoggi or if something went wrong at the consulate and that he might have been killed during an attempt to kidnap him.

Khashoggi, journalist and regular columnist for the Washington Post, has been missing since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. The president said in his interview that Jamal Khashoggi went into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and it doesn't look like he came out.

After several of his friends were arrested, his column was cancelled by the al-Hayat newspaper and he was allegedly warned to stop tweeting, Mr Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia for the U.S., from where he wrote opinion pieces for the Washington Post and continued to appear on Arab and Western TV channels.

US President Donald Trump has expressed concern about the writer's disappearance.

On the same day, 15 Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while Khashoggi was also inside, police sources said.

Kavanaugh can be expected to cast crucial votes on those issues as well as gun control, immigration, voting rights and others. Police barricades were up in front of the court, but the few protesters congregated near the garage where the justices enter.

No exact timeframe was given for when the search would take place. Regardless, Khashoggi's last known whereabouts was there at around 1:14 p.m. local time last Tuesday. Following the Post report, State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino said the U.S. "had no advanced knowledge of Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance". He says that stepping back from arms sales to the Saudis "a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country".

Khashoggi, 59, was last seen entering the Saudi consulate through the main entrance on October 2.

Khashoggi was at the consulate to obtain paperwork so he could marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.

"When President Trump became president, we've changed our armament strategy again for the next 10 years to put more than 60% with the United States of America", he added.

Khashoggi said in the beginning of the recording that now he lives between Istanbul and Washington.

Mr Hunt said that if reports of Mr Khashoggi's death proved correct, the United Kingdom would regard the situation as "serious", adding: "Friendships depend on shared values".

It has voiced deep concern at the "apparent enforced disappearance". Turkish media have said the 15 were an "assassination team" and that they took the consulate's footage with them.

Turkey can not remain silent over the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, President Tayyip Erdogan was quoted as saying by Hurriyet newspaper on Thursday, adding Turkey is investigating all aspects of the case.

HRW also charged that Saudi authorities had "escalated repression against dissidents and critics" since the crown prince was appointed in June 2017.

Sherif Diab, an Egyptian activist who attended a rally outside the consulate on Monday, told Al Jazeera that they gathered to find justice for Khashoggi, condemning Saudi authorities.
