Saudi journalist disappearance ruffles feathers in Washington

Saudi journalist disappearance ruffles feathers in Washington

The U.S. State Department has called on Saudi Arabia to conduct a "thorough" probe into the mysterious disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, whose case sparked worldwide concern over the kingdom's apparent crackdown on dissent.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told reporters on Sunday evening that the authorities have started checking all security cameras and airport records, hours after a Turkish security source told Reuters that "Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate".

Turkey's foreign ministry said Saudi Arabia will allow Turkish investigators into its Istanbul consulate to probe the disappearance and alleged murder of Khashoggi.

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.

Erdogan told reporters on a flight back from Hungary that Turkey is anxious about the Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Saudi journalist entered the Saudi consulate Tuesday (October 2) to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage while his Turkish fiancée waited outside. The Saudi consulate called the claim "baseless" on Twitter.

A man then came to the entrance and told her, "There's no one inside".

Turkey reportedly says it is scouring road cameras for a black van believed to have carried Mr Khashoggi's body from the consulate, while the Washington Post released CCTV footage of the journalist entering the building on Monday.

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

"We're not leading by example, and so whenever we make condemnations of other country's anti-press behavior, it may seem like hollow words", Ewen said.

Jeremy Hunt has warned Saudi Arabia that "friendships depend on shared values" after questioning the country's ambassador over the disappearance of a journalist.

Khashoggi, 59, went missing while on a visit to the consulate in Istanbul for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancee. "Hopefully that will sort itself out", the president added.

Khashoggi had sought to become a USA citizen after living in self-imposed exile since a year ago, fearing repercussions for his criticism of the prince, Cengiz wrote. "It is [the duty] of the consulate officials", Erdogan said during a visit to Hungary. He is an outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia who has dared to defy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's de facto ruler.

Ties between Ankara and Riyadh are at a low point over Turkey's support for Qatar in its year-long dispute with Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations.

During the meeting, Ryan expressed The Post's "grave concern" about Khashoggi's disappearance, and said the news organization would view any Saudi government involvement in his disappearance as a flagrant attack on one of its journalists.

USA and Saudi officials have yet to comment on that report.

Saudi prince Khalid bin Farhan al-Saud, who has fled to Germany after the empowerment of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, called on people to overthrow the current rulers in Riyadh after the recent murder of prominent journalist Jamal Khashoggi by the Al-e Saud.

Saudi Arabia on Sunday denied reports that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing earlier this week, was killed at the country's consulate in Istanbul, as reported by several worldwide media.

"The Saudi Consulate can not absolve itself of responsibility for this incident by allowing its premises to be searched", said Gulseren Yoleri of the Human Rights Association. These include ending all relationships with Iran and Turkey, ending support for the Muslim Brotherhood, and shutting down al-Jazeera, which has been highly critical of Saudi Arabia - things that are never going to happen.
