15 suspects, video footage offer new clues in case of missing Saudi reporter

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.

Saudi Arabia has been accused of being behind the disappearance.

The U.S. government has remained relatively quiet on the disappearance, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Saudi leaders to "support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation". It said they checked into two hotels in Istanbul on 2 Oct, the day Khashoggi went missing, and left later that day.

A tweet by Saud Al-Qahtani, an adviser to the Royal Court of Saudi Arabia who is close to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, threatening to kill the opposition even if they hide under the Kaaba curtain has been widely condemned.

Turkey said Tuesday it would search the Saudi Consulate.

The planes belonged to a company based in Saudi Arabia that has links to the state. She acknowledged the writer first visited the consulate on September 28 "despite being somewhat concerned that he could be in danger".

On Wednesday, the Post published a column by Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.

But that's not enough for Khashoggi's fiance, who wrote an op-ed Tuesday imploring "President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

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".

This image taken from CCTV video obtained by the Turkish newspaper Hurriyet and made available on Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2018 claims to show Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018.

The search will take place as part of the official investigation, which was being conducted "in an intense manner", he said without giving any date.
