Turkey has concrete information on disappearance of Saudi dissident, authorities say

In rebuttal to Trump, bin Salman says Saudi won't pay US for kingdom's security

"Do you not have cameras and everything of the sort?"

Members of the police and MİT will reportedly jointly analyze surveillance videos of the consulate's entrance and exits as well as the airports in Istanbul and gather any information that might help the case. "They have all of them".

"If a person walks into premises and if he isn't stepping out, then who has to prove it?" "You need to prove it". "We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate".

Protesters gathered outside the Saudi consulate on Monday with banners reading "We will not leave without Jamal Khashoggi", demanding to know what had happened to the reporter.

Ankara's search request was made after the foreign ministry summoned the Saudi ambassador for a second time on Sunday over the journalist's disappearance.

Turkish officials have said authorities believe Khashoggi was killed at the consulate, allegations denied by Saudi Arabia.

The Washington Post reports a Turkish investigation has revealed that a group of about 15 Saudi men traveled to Istanbul to kill Khashoggi as he visited the consulate.

"Turkey and Saudi Arabia differ on a host of issues, whether it's Iran, Qatar, the Muslim Brotherhood".

A source told MEE on Monday that a Turkish forensics team was poised to enter the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

"The consulate should make a clear explanation", he added, drawing a contrast to a troubled and less-assertive period of Turkey's recent past.

Senators were allowed to read it behind closed doors in a secure location in the Capitol, without taking notes or making copies. Judge Kavanaugh, meanwhile, expressed regret for his angry testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee a week ago.

Multiple media reports say that the group of 15 Saudis descended on the consulate Tuesday and later left.

Ulrichsen said that it would "likely trigger a diplomatic crisis" between Ankara and Riyadh if the Saudis are linked to Khashoggi's death.

A U.S. official said that Turkish investigators believe Khashoggi was likely dismembered, removed in boxes and flown out of the country.

Amnesty International called on Saudi authorities to "immediately disclose the evidence supporting their claim that Jamal Khashoggi left the consulate last Tuesday, otherwise their claims are utterly baseless and only exacerbate suspicions that they are indeed detaining him in what would amount to an enforced disappearance".

The ambassador declined to discuss the matter further, instead saying, "We don't want to harm the investigation".

Turan Kislakci, a friend of Khashoggi and the head of the Turkish-Arab Media Association, spoke to the AP on Sunday outside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Khashoggi's criticism of the current Saudi leadership "has been honest", adding that he had seen him personally over the past year and had even exchanged text messages with the missing journalist.

He said The Post was committed to discovering the truth and that if the investigation showed any Saudi government involvement, the news organisation would view it as a flagrant attack on one of its journalists.

He visited the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain documentation to finalize his divorce; his Turkish fiancée waited for him outside the building, and reported him missing after he didn't return. The consulate officials said that he left shortly after entering the consulate but his fiancee said she did not see him coming out. As has been widely reported, Khashoggi hails from a prominent Saudi family and has maintained an uneasy existence as an alternating confidant and a critic of the ruling regime, including most recently as a Washington Post commentator living in exile in the United States.
