Media captionCCTV footage shows missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The video obtained by Turkey's public broadcaster could be key to discerning the fate of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was last seen in Istanbul on October 2nd.

The kingdom has called the allegations "baseless", but has not provided any evidence that Khashoggi left the consulate and did not respond to requests for comment Wednesday.

The Sabah newspaper, which is close to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, identified the team members, including several alleged security officials, and published photos of each of them, apparently taken at passport control.

A squad of 15 Saudi Arabian men reportedly flew to Turkey just in time for Khashoggi's visit to the consulate for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée.

Politicians in the US, Riyadh's main ally, have warned that any harm done to the Washington Post contributor will jeopardise America's relations with the world's largest oil exporter. The footage shows Khashoggi entering the consulate on October 2.

Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said Tuesday he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Khashoggi, "but I will be at some point", without elaborating. Turkish officials have alleged he was killed in the compound while Saudis officials said he left the building unharmed.

On Tuesday Turkish foreign ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy revealed in a statement that Saudi authorities had said they "were open to cooperation and that a search can be conducted at the consulate building".
